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.
Tokyo is known for historic sites, parks, shopping, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sensō-ji, and wander the streets of Odaiba.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, use the Tokyo road trip tool .

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Tokyo is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in April, things will get cooler in Tokyo: highs are around 22°C and lows about 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, and see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics.

To see where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Osaka road trip planning app .

Getting from Tokyo to Osaka by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. April in Osaka sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 12°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
