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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Kamakura (KĊtoku-in, Hase-dera Temple, &more), Yokohama (Takanashi Milk Rose Garden, Yokohama Silk Museum, &more) and Maihama (Tokyo DisneySea & Tokyo Disneyland). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum, wander the streets of Odaiba District, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.

You can plan Tokyo trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more), Sato Fruit Kobo (in Nishiwaki) and Himeji (Koko-en & Himeji Castle). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, see the top attractions with Photoguider-Japan, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and wander the streets of Dotombori District.
