Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle and meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

Land of the Rising Sun
Part of a volcanic archipelago that encompasses over 6,800 islands, Japan remains one of Asia's most fascinating tourist destinations, where a blend of modernity and tradition creates a look and feel completely different from any other place in the world. 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.
