Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Mount Fuji, Sanrio Puroland, Tokyo City View Observation Deck (Roppongihills), and other attractions.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Tokyo travel route planner.

George Town, Malaysia to Tokyo is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from George Town to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Traveling from George Town in December, things will get much colder in Tokyo: highs are around 14°C and lows about 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can travel to Osaka.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Kansai Tourist Information Center, Kansai International Airport, Osaka Shochikuza, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and other attractions. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sunset Owl Cafe and Midosuji Street. For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Hankyu Umeda Main Store. There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, get to know the fascinating history of Osaka, and don't miss a visit to Tempozan Ferris Wheel.

For photos, ratings, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka day trip planning app .
