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 Nunobiki Falls (Nunobiki-No-Taki). Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Dotombori District are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Koya-cho (Mt. Koya & Koyasan Okunoin), Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Shugakuin Imperial Villa, &more) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine & Todai-ji Temple). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, deepen your understanding at Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, and contemplate the long history of Byodoin.
