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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Dotombori District. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Todai-ji Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Kinkaku-ji, &more) and Nara Park (in Nara). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, stroll the grounds of Isshinji Temple, and see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Senso-ji Temple and Tokyo National Museum. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Moroiso Shores and Akiya, Tateishi Coast. Take a break from Tokyo with a short trip to Koajiro Forest in Miura, about 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum, take a stroll through Odaiba District, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and engage your brain at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan.

To plan Tokyo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Getting from Osaka to Tokyo by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. August in Tokyo sees daily highs of °C and lows of °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
