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.
On the 15th (Fri), see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, then let little ones run wild at Tennoji Zoo, and then take a stroll through Dotonbori.

Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar to Osaka is an approximately 9-hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone changes from Myanmar Time (MMT) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Traveling from Yangon (Rangoon) in September, Osaka is slightly colder at night with lows of 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to catch the train to Kyoto.

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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto International Manga Museum and Hikone Castle. Get in touch with nature at Arashiyama and Kamogawa River. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Mantoku-ji Temple (in Obama), Uji (Nembutsuji Temple, Yamashiro Sports Park Taiyogaoka, & more) and Aeon Mall Kumiyama (in Kumiyama-cho). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari Taisha, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple.

To see traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Kyoto itinerary maker.

Kyoto is just a short distance from Osaka. In September, daytime highs in Kyoto are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to take a train to Tokyo.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Shop till you drop at The Tsukiji Market and Ginza. Museum-lovers will get to explore Tokyo National Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Urayasu (Disney Resort Line, Tokyo Disneyland, & more), Hakone-machi (Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu, Lake Ashi (Ashinoko), & more) and Mt. Takao (in Hachioji). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, examine the collection at Ghibli Museum, ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace, and wander the streets of Asakusa.
