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.
Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to Tokyo DisneySea in Urayasu--about 30 minutes away. Have a day of magic on the 10th (Sun) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, appreciate the extensive heritage of Imperial Palace, admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

For reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Tokyo travel route site .

If you are flying in from Hungary, the closest major airports are Tokyo Haneda International Airport, Narita International Airport and Hyakuri Airport. March in Tokyo sees daily highs of 17°C and lows of 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel to 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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Bamboo Forest Street, Kuromon Market, Kyoto Tower, and other attractions you added. On the 14th (Thu), make a trip to Kuromon Market, do sightseeing your way with Cycle Osaka, then get great views at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and finally pick up some new kitchen skills with Haru Cooking Class. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, step into the grandiose world of Nijo-jo Castle, steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine, then take a stroll through Gion, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Kyoto Tower.

For traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Kyoto trip planner.

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Kyoto takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. In March, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
