Osaka

— 2 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.
On the 19th (Mon), take a stroll through Dotombori District and then get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senko-ji Temple, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and then contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.
