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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Osaka Castle, Dotombori District, Umeda Sky Building, and other attractions. Kick off your visit on the 31st (Tue): step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, then admire the landmark architecture of Umeda Sky Building, and then take a stroll through Dotombori District. Here are some ideas for day two: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan and then raise your glass at PC and Retro Bar Space Station.

A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with ancient temples and innovative skyscrapers, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests seemingly untouched by the hand of mass tourism. Many tourists on vacation in Japan devote lots of time to the country's unique cuisine, prepared with painstaking attention to detail and a genius for simple yet effective presentation.
