Tokyo

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.
Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Hakone-machi (Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) & The Hakone Open-Air Museum) and Maihama (Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea). There's much more to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, appreciate the extensive heritage of Imperial Palace, and take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

For other places to visit, maps, reviews, and tourist information, use the Tokyo online travel route planner.

Kyoto ©
The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Byodoin (in Uji), Nara (Isuien Garden, Kasuga Grand Shrine, &more) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Kuchu Teien Observatory, &more). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, wander the streets of Arashiyama, and stop by Dotombori District.
