I will be in Osaka for 8 days and everywhere is booked out for the last weekend. Thought I might head out of the city so I am looking for something a little different and not ridiculously expensive - any ideas?

Ok, the revision. where would you like to have experienced/visited in the Kansei area/prefecture if you were only there for a weekend?

Go to Shirakawago. Not a short trip, train to Takayama then bus from there to Shirakawago, but it is a cool little village the steep pitched thatched roofs and historic minshukus. Totally different from Osaka.


Kyoto has many places to visit, and is less than an hour by train from Osaka. There are many smaller hotels and ryokan there.
