Travel Japan in photos - click for cityOsaka
The heart of Kansai, and probably the second most important city of Japan, Osaka is a one-of-a-kind modern merchant city with an attitude. People speak kansaiben ( kansai dialect ) which somehow has the same ring as their lifestyle... they are friendly, loud, upfront, and like to live out things. Osaka is also the proof of the fact that if you eat a lot of healthy food and don't stress yourself, you'll grow up to be tall, cheerful and healthy.

Osaka Castle, Central Osaka
The most famous historic sight in Osaka, the Osaka castle stands right in the middle of the city, equally far from the business complexes and the busy station of Umeda ( North Osaka ) and the unbelievably vibrant entertainment districts of Namba, Ebisubashi and Dotonbori ( South Osaka ). It's surrounded by its own huge park and is neighboring the Osaka Business Park.


Osaka, Shinsekai
Shinsekai means New World, which conveys its purpose of being built as a new age entertainment and dining district... back in 1969. It strictly stayed the way it was. Now it's an amazing retro area with great dining, an ideal place to see how ( depressing ) the architecture was back then. But most importantly it's the home of the famous icon of Osaka, the Tsutenkaku tower.

Kyoto Pictures, selected attractions

   
Kyoto
Has been the capital of Japan for many times and thus it's well guarding its cultural and architectural history. Offers more beautiful temples and shrines than any other place, which now coexist with the modern age centers in a nice blend.
Shinkansen to Kyoto
En route to Kyoto encounter some of the most beautiful landscapes of the country as a comfortable real-time slideshow. Views include Fuji san ( mount Fuji ) as well as some typical countryside moments.
Kyoto, Arashiyama
The northwestern area of Kyoto, with its own train lines leading to an unbelievable district of Buddhist temples, bamboo groves, hillside gardens, Shinto shrines and the colorful atmospheric facilities around the stations catering to the visitors who arrive from all over Japan.
Kyoto, Kurama, Kibune
The cute twin valleys hidden on the northernmost of Kyoto offer an unforgettable walk by Kibune river, with classic ryokans ( Japanese inns ) and restaurants built in complete harmony with their surroundings, and a traditional onsen ( hot spring spa ) in Kurama.
Nara
Also a past capital, probably the No. 1 destination for school trips for its calm strolls of historic sights. Has the second highest density of temples and shrines to Kyoto, but being one tenth in size is much more relaxed. Most famous for the Daibutsu Den ( hall of the great Buddha ) and Nara Koen ( park ) which takes up the entire eastern area. Filled with deer walking about freely, not paying you attention unless you possess shika-senbei crackers.
