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.
Attractions like Tokyo Disneyland and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden make great kid-friendly stops. When in Tokyo, make a side trip to see Tokyo DisneySea in Maihama, approximately 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sensō-ji, and make a trip to Shibuya Crossing.

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.

There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Dotonbori, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.
