Osaka

— 4 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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Dotombori District and Osaka Castle. For shopping fun, head to Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street or Minami (Namba). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, don't miss a visit to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, enjoy the sand and surf at Osaka Fureai no Mizube, and take in the pleasant sights at Nakanoshima Banks.
