Osaka

— 4 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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Osaka Nanko Bird Sanctuary. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and wander the streets of Dotombori District.
