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 a sense of the local culture at Tokyo National Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum. Get outdoors at Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) and Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park). Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Yokohama (Yamashita Park & Yokohama Chinatown), Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Hakone Shisseikaen (in Hakone-machi). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Odaiba District, stop by Asakusa, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace.

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. For shopping fun, head to Dotombori District or Minami (Namba). Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach (in Ashiya), Nara (Nara Park, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, &more) and Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum (in Osaka). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Gion, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, see the interesting displays at Kyoto International Manga Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum.
