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.
Visit Kinkaku-ji and Kasuga Grand Shrine for their historical value. Step off the beaten path and head to Tenryuji Temple and Toji. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Muroji Temple (in Uda), Sakurai (Hase-dera Temple & Omiwa Shrine) and Kashihara Jingu (in Kashihara). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Nigatsu-do Temple, take a stroll through Dotombori District, don't miss a visit to Byodoin, and admire the masterpieces at Miho Museum.
