Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Higashinada (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum & Kobe Fashion Museum) and Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nigatsu-do Temple). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, see the interesting displays at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
