Osaka — 10 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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Himeji (Shoshazan Engyoji, Himeji Castle, &more), Jishu Shrine (in Otsu) and Kyoto (Toji, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, stop by Tobita Shinchi, take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory, and find something for the whole family at Umeda Joypolis.
