Osaka

— 9 nights
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.
Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Gion, &more), Nara (Nara Park, Nigatsu-do Temple, &more) and Himeji Castle (in Himeji). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Dotombori District, make a trip to Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe.
