Start your trip in fun-loving Osaka, otherwise known as Japan's Kitchen. Osaka has a thriving food culture - okonomiyaki, takoyaki and kushikatsu are just some of Osaka's specialties. Then, take a day trip to ancient Nara, where you'll have the opportunity to feed some of the city's free-roaming deer. Next, explore historical Kyoto, which was Japan's capital for more than 1000 years. Enjoy meandering down the well-preserved streets of Kyoto's geisha district and exploring the city's temples and shrines.
