Kobe

— 31 nights
Walkable, small, and aesthetically charming, Kobe has served as Japan's first and premier international trading outpost since opening to trade with China in the mid-19th century.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kobe: Goryo Shrine (in Fukuchiyama), Nishinomiya (KidZania Koshien, Lalaport Koshien, &more) and Himeji (Senhime Temmangu Shrine, Koko-en, &more). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown), soak in some Japanese tradition at Arima Onsen, enjoy breathtaking views from Kobe City Hall (Observation Deck), and deepen your understanding at Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution.

Osaka

— 26 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Toji, Katsura Imperial Villa, &more), Mino (Waterfall of Mino & Minoo Park) and Wakayama (Porto Europe & Wakayama Castle). Pack the 15th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Hirakata Park. There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
