Osaka

— 7 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Tempozan Ferris Wheel and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine. Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Awaji (Awaji Highway Oasis, Kiseki no Hoshi Botanical Museum, &more), Uji (Mimurotoji Temple & Aagata Shrine) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Kyoto). Next up on the itinerary: explore the engaging exhibits at Kids Plaza Osaka, take in panoramic vistas at Tsutenkaku, take in nature's colorful creations at Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens, and walk around Nakanoshima Park.
