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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Nipponbashi Denden Town, Don Quijote and Osaka Station City. Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Gion, & more). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Dotonbori, get a taste of the local shopping with Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.

Plan a trip to Osaka easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

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.

Kids will enjoy Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings and Tokyo Sea Life Park. Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to Sankeien Gardens in Naka--about 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, walk around Ueno Park, explore the world behind art at Tokyo National Museum, and take some stellar pictures from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
