Osaka

— 9 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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Mt. Koya (in Koya-cho), Nara (Jurinin Temple, Nara Park, &more) and Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, admire the landmark architecture of Miraiza Osaka-jo, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
