Osaka

— 6 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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Kansai Tourist Information Center, Kansai International Airport, Osaka Shochikuza, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and other attractions you added. Head to Dotombori District and Midosuji Streetfor some retail therapy. Get a sense of the local culture at Osaka Castle and Osaka. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten, and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.
