Opinions on Osaka? And other burning questions...

Jump to last reply

I could keep 4 nights in Tokyo at the beginning of the trip, or I could potentially split them between Okayama and Osaka (or somewhere else) on the way from Hakone to Hiroshima. (I have 6 nights in Tokyo at the end of my trip, so I don't know if I need the earlier 4 nights).

I haven't seen a lot of enthusiasm for Osaka online but I was considering visiting for the aquarium. I don't know if the city is worth two nights though. And perhaps there is a more interesting place in the area to spend that time? I don't know if I want to add another city; one of the reasons I'm considering dropping nights in Tokyo is because I think I may be a bit burned out city wise.

Another question: does anyone have any favorite walking or biking tour companies in Kyoto? I was hoping one of Context's tours would line up with my dates, but no luck as of yet. I really enjoy great neighborhood/cultural/history tours.

Lastly: how many nights is too many for Kanazawa? I have 4, and I have three that I could put towards Kanazawa or elsewhere. Those nights are a gap between Kanazawa and Tokyo towards the end of my trip.
