Osaka

— 44 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: Kobe (Tokkosan Kaburaiji Temple, Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, &more), Kyoto (Spas, Nijo Castle, &more) and Himeji (Koko-en & Himeji Castle). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Koya, and take a stroll through Dotombori District.

Land of the Rising Sun
Part of a volcanic archipelago that encompasses over 6,800 islands, Japan remains one of Asia's most fascinating tourist destinations, where a blend of modernity and tradition creates a look and feel completely different from any other place in the world. A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with ancient temples and innovative skyscrapers, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests seemingly untouched by the hand of mass tourism. Many tourists on vacation in Japan devote lots of time to the country's unique cuisine, prepared with painstaking attention to detail and a genius for simple yet effective presentation.
