Osaka

— 13 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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hozenji Yokocho and Mint Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Shimamoto-cho (Suntory Yamazaki Distillery & Shiio Shrine), Mino (Katsuo-ji Temple, Minoo Park, &more) and Iwatemori Shrine (in Takatsuki). There's still lots to do: have fun and explore at Kids Plaza Osaka, walk around The Tower of the Sun, make a trip to Nakanoshima Park, and contemplate the long history of Tekijuku.
