Osaka

— 13 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kishiwada (Kishiwada Castle, KIshiwada Castle Garden Hachijin no Niwa, &more), Ikeda (Cup Noodle Museum Osaka Ikeda & Kyuan-ji Temple) and Suntory Yamazaki Distillery (in Shimamoto-cho). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, get a taste of the local shopping with Dotombori District, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.
