Osaka

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.
Kids Plaza Osaka and Koyasan Daishi Kyokai are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to Open-Air Museum of Old Japanese Farm Houses and Panasonic Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Kishiwada Danjiri Kaikan (in Kishiwada), Sayamaike Museum (in Osakasayama) and Tannowa Beach (in Misaki-cho). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Kinpusenji Temple, see the interesting displays at Alphonse Mucha Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kimiidera Temple, and take an in-depth tour of Koshien History Museum.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Explore hidden gems such as Shinbashi Dori and Suntory Kyoto Brewery. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Rengeji Temple and Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple). Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Kinomotojuku (in Nagahama), Nantan (The Little Indigo Museum & Kayabuki-no-sato Kitamura) and Kaizu Osaki (in Takashima). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Kaleidoscope Museum of Kyoto, contemplate the long history of Pagoda at Myotusji Temple, admire the natural beauty at Garden of Fine Arts, and explore the world behind art at Miho Museum.
