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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Koyasan Okunoin and Nanzen-ji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Toshodai-ji Temple (in Nara), Kyoto (Eikando Zenrinji Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Koyasan Danjo Garan (in Koya-cho). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple), make a trip to Hōzen-ji Temple, and go for a walk through Taiyo Square.

To see other places to visit, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka online route builder.
