Osaka — 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.
On the 1st (Sun), indulge your senses at Kampai Sake Tours, then look for gifts at Tower Knives Osaka, and then test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Todaiji Keidaicho, take in the spiritual surroundings of Daibutsuden, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shinyakushiji Temple, then steep yourself in history at Tekijuku, and finally admire the masterpieces at Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum.
