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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Tokyo Disneyland and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Step out of Tokyo to go to Maihama and see Tokyo DisneySea, which is approximately 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, engage your brain at National Museum of Nature and Science, and have some family-friendly fun at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou.

To see traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Tokyo trip itinerary maker tool .

Bengaluru, India to Tokyo is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone difference when traveling from Bengaluru to Tokyo is 3 hours. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Bengaluru in August since evenings lows in Tokyo dip to 28°C.

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 Osaka's surroundings by going to Kinkaku-ji (in Kyoto), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's more to do: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle and take a stroll through Dotonbori.
