Kyoto or Tokyo?

I'll be traveling to Japan in Feb. 2014 I have the option to go to either Kyoto or Tokyo so which would you pick? I love museums and history but I also want to experience Tokyo. What should I do?!

They have museums and history in both cities, but if you wan want to experience Tokyo, I'd say that's where you should go.

I prefer Kyoto myself. It's a more manageable city for walking and wandering and has more historical shops, neighborhoods and buildings.

Please say more about yourself and your hopes for this trip. I am in Kyoto now and was in Tokyo last week so the differences between your two candidate cities are uppermost in mind.

Like Lcuy (above), I prefer Kyoto if a choice is required. It is one of my favorite cities. Each time I visit Tokyo, I like it better and better though.

It is also incredibly easy to fly into KIX (Kansai International airport) for me, but I don't know where you are from and what route choices you are contemplating.

Say more about your previous experiences and hopes for this trip so we can help.

With five nights I would stay in only one so your likes and wants come into play here. Either city have International gateways of NRT of KIX so flights should not be the problem.

Aloha!

Depends on your personal interests -- without knowing more, if I had to choose according to my preferences, I'd pick Kyoto, though I really enjoyed both and both have much to recommend them.
