Osaka

— 5 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.
Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Kinkaku-ji make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Gion, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more) and Nara Park (in Nara). There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle.

For reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip itinerary maker site.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, and get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.
