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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Shibuya Crossing, Asakusa, Ginza, and other attractions. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sensō-ji and Kabukicho. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Takeshita Street, get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Tokyo trip planner .

Hong Kong, China to Tokyo is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight.

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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Nara Park, Shitennoji Temple, Kuromon Market, and other attractions you added.

Plan my Osaka trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Osaka takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. In June, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 22°C. You'll have a few hours on the 8th (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling home.
