You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Gotemba Premium Outlets (in Gotemba), Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi) and Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu (in Hakone-machi). The adventure continues: get curious at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan, pause for some photo ops at Hachiko, see the interesting displays at The Gallery of Horyuji Treasures, and take in nature's colorful creations at Rikugien Garden.

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Osaka Castle, Abeno Harukas, Tempozan Ferris Wheel, and other attractions you added. There's more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.
