Osaka, Japan

— 2 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.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Mon): step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle and then don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market Shopping District. Keep things going the next day: wander the streets of Dotombori District, then contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, then contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and finally shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten.
