2. Osaka

Osaka is Japan’s second city, with many similarities to the capitol but with many key differences as well. While the atmosphere and local flavour may be different, it is still exciting, with Dotonburi, Osaka Castle and Universal Studios to keep everyone in the family happy. With its slightly slower pace than Tokyo, and proximity to world heritage sites in Kyoto and Nara, your visit will reveal a world of difference.

4. Sapporo

Not just a stopover on your way to the ski slopes of Hokkaido, Sapporo has a lot to offer travellers. Surprisingly big and cosmopolitan, you can start your trip by snacking on Shiroi Koibito cookies, visit the Shiroi Koibito Park where you can observe the chocolate-making process and take part in workshops where you can make your own cookies. In addition to the snowboarding or skiing, you can’t pass up a trip to the local hot springs, while you’re there, check out their ice sculpting festival.
