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.
Take a break from Tokyo with a short trip to Tokyo Disneyland in Maihama, about 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Skytree, and stroll around Ueno Park.

To find ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Tokyo tour itinerary planner.

Perth, Australia to Tokyo is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Perth to Tokyo. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Perth in April, with highs in Tokyo at 22°C and lows at 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel to Osaka.

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine) and Kofuku-ji Temple (in Nara). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, shop like a local with Dotombori District, and explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle.

To see ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read Osaka trip itinerary maker app.

Getting from Tokyo to Osaka by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 23°C in April, and nighttime lows around 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Kumano.
