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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Mt. Wakakusa, &more), Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Kobe (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, &more). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle, and take in the views from Oe Bridge.
