Osaka

— 28 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.
Koshien History Museum and Koyasan Daishi Kyokai are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to National Museum of Ethnology and Kawasaki Good Times World. Venture out of the city with trips to Tannowa Beach (in Misaki-cho), Sayamaike Museum (in Osakasayama) and Kishiwada Danjiri Kaikan (in Kishiwada). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Rokkaku Kyozo, don't miss a visit to Kinpusenji Temple, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kimiidera Temple.
