Osaka

— 11 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.
Do your shopping at Dotombori District and Nishijin Textile Center. Popular historic sites such as Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara (Nigatsu-do Temple, Nara Park, &more), Kyoto (Katsura Imperial Villa, Namikawa Yasuyuki Sippo Memorial Museum, &more) and Nagaokakyo Municipal Nakayama Shuichi Memorial Museum (in Nagaokakyo). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Peace Osaka.
