The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Appreciate the collections at Kyoto International Manga Museum and Kyoto National Museum. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and don't miss a visit to Gion.

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 6th (Fri), examine the collection at Namban Culture Center, then step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, then take an in-depth tour of Peace Osaka, and finally see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: get a taste of the local shopping with Daimaru Museum Umeda, then examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, and then wander the streets of Dotonbori.
