Osaka is Japan’s 3rd most populous city, known for having Japan’s friendliest and most out-going people. Famous for its food, eating until you drop is common in Osaka. If shopping is on your list, Shinsaibashi Suji, a favorite with local folk will not disappoint. This covered shopping arcade is one of Osaka’s oldest and busiest.

Kyoto is unlike any other city in Japan. Considered one of the most beautiful cities in Japan, Kyoto brings historical Japan to life in a modern age. You can experience historical Japan throughout the city while still having access to modern amenities and transportation.

Kobe, perched on a hillside sloping down to the sea, is one of Japan’s most attractive and cosmopolitan cities. It was a maritime gateway from the earliest days of trade with China and home to one of the first foreign communities after Japan reopened to the world in the mid-19th century.

Come, join us on this fun-filled weekend. Yes, it’s filled with quality omiyage shopping time, but we also included the best touring sites, Golden Pavilion, Osaka Castle, a sake brewery, a hands-on experience, and a visit to Glicopia Kobe, where you can learn and sample Glico’s popular snacks like Pretz and Pocky. 

Accommodations for our stay is at Hotel Monterey Grasmere Osaka, ideally located, just a couple of blocks from Shinsaibashi and Dotonbori. Housed in the top half of an office complex, rooms here offer exceptional city views. At the base, a supermarket, ideal for bargain omiyage shopping.
