Osaka — 3 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.
Head to Dotombori District and Minami (Namba)for plenty of shopping. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Tofuku-ji Temple and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Mt. Kurama, Sanzen-in Temple, &more) and Cup Noodle Museum Osaka Ikeda (in Ikeda). There's more to do: contemplate the long history of Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine and shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten.
