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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Yokohama Minato Mirai 21 and Omotesando. Discover out-of-the-way places like Ueno and Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and get a taste of the local shopping with Ginza.

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nijo Castle. Do your shopping at Dotombori and Kyoto Station Building. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan and wander the streets of Minami (Namba).

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Osaka trip itinerary planning app.

You can take a train from Tokyo to Osaka in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. In April, plan for daily highs up to 23°C, and evening lows to 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to take a train to Kobe.

Walkable, small, and aesthetically charming, Kobe has served as Japan's first and premier international trading outpost since opening to trade with China in the mid-19th century.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Mon): get to know the resident critters at Kobe Oji Zoo, then indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at Arima Onsen, and then take in panoramic vistas at Kobe City Hall (Observation Deck). On the 10th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: wander the streets of Kobe Harborland and then wander the streets of Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown).

To find other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Kobe trip tool.

Kobe is very close to Osaka. Traveling from Osaka in April, expect nights in Kobe to be about the same, around 14°C, while days are little chillier, around 20°C. On the 10th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
