Osaka — 11 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Todai-ji Temple, &more), Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Gion, &more) and Himeji (Koko-en & Himeji Castle). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, make a trip to Kuchu Teien Observatory, admire the striking features of Umeda Sky Building, and walk around Nakanoshima Park.
