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.
Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to Tokyo DisneySea in Urayasu--about 30 minutes away. Have a day of magic on the 17th (Thu) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace, see the interesting displays at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senso-ji Temple.

To find maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Tokyo holiday site .

Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.

There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Nagoya Castle, contemplate the long history of Okage Yokocho, admire the natural beauty at Nabana no Sato, and explore the world behind art at Tokugawa Art Museum.

To find maps, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Nagoya visit website .
