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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka), Yokohama (Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo & Sankeien Gardens) and Kamakura (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Hase-dera Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum, admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, and discover the magic at Tokyo Disneyland.

For maps, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Tokyo online road trip planner.

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.

There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, and wander the streets of Gion.
