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.
Tokyo is known for historic sites, shopping, parks, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sensō-ji, get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.

Planning Tokyo trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Bangkok, Thailand to Tokyo is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight, taxi, and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Bangkok to Tokyo. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Bangkok in February: high temperatures in Tokyo hover around 12°C and lows are around 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) early enough to 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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka road trip planner .

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Osaka takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. In March, daytime highs in Osaka are 16°C, while nighttime lows are 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
