Osaka, Kyoto and surroundings
Osaka has earnt the moniker 'the kitchen of Japan': from savoury staples such as okonomiyaki to sweet treats like Pocky (so popular, it has its own museum!), there's nowhere better to indulge than here. Drink and dance the night away in the Chuo Ward, the city's beating heart, and recover at the peaceful Tennoji Park or beneath Osaka Castle, one of the country's most famous landmarks.
Just 15 minutes away by shinkansen, Kyoto is Japan's cultural capital: with over 1600 temples and 400 shrines, this ancient city transports visitors back in time. Be sure to visit nearby Nara to say hi to its famous bowing deer!
