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.
Get in touch with nature at Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) and Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park). For shopping fun, head to Ginza or Takeshita Street. Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Hakone Shisseikaen (in Hakone-machi). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Tokyo National Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senso-ji Temple, see the interesting displays at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

For maps, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary website.

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nara Park. Step out of the city life by going to Tanoura Beach and Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Dotombori District (in Dotombori), Minami (Namba) (in Namba) and Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum (in Osaka). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto National Museum, take a stroll through Gion, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple.

To find reviews, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Kyoto tour site.

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Kyoto takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 16°C in March, and nighttime lows around 5°C. On the 11th (Sun), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
