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.
Kyoto International Manga Museum and Todaiji Temple Cultural Center will appeal to museum buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Gion and Nara Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Forever Museum of Contemporary Art, & more) and Kyoto (Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, Hosomi Museum, & more). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, contemplate the long history of Himeji Castle, and get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. June in Osaka sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
