Here are some ideas for day two: take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, thentake in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, and then discover the magic at Tokyo DisneySea.

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.
Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Nijo Castle. Next up on the itinerary: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
