Anyone's been to Osaka or Kyoto or nearby places?
As I have been swamped with work as of late, it would be great to get some detailed info on some of the most scenic temples/shrines/castles, beautiful gardens, delectable food, unique outdoor markets, relaxing onsen, world-class museums, etc. during the peak period in Autumn.
Budget is not an issue and as much as possible, I would like to have a multi-dimensional experience ie I would like to try some of the cheapest things that offer great value for money as well as some of the finest that Kyoto or Osaka has to offer.
Thanks in advance!
