Osaka

— 12 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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nara Park and Mt. Maya. Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Dotombori District are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Shugakuin Imperial Villa, &more), Koya-cho (Mt. Koya & Koyasan Okunoin) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine & Todai-ji Temple). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take in panoramic vistas at Tsutenkaku, make a trip to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
