Help with Japan Trip, Osaka or Kyoto!

jammer9050 | Jun 17, 201508:21 AM     2

My fiance (then wife) will be traveling to Japan for 10 nights in early May 2016 (we're landing May 5, the last day of Golden Week which is unavoidable since we will be first visiting family in Hong Kong and this is the only time that works for them). Due to flight schedules, we're going to flying into Osaka and back home from Tokyo.

My plan is to spend 5 nights in either Kyoto or Osaka, and the last 5 nights in Tokyo, and do day trips from both destinations. I've heard varying things about both Kyoto and Osaka, in that Kyoto has more to do and see, but is dead at night, while Osaka is the opposite. The deciding factor will most likely be the food. Which is a better food city? Is there a clear-cut winner? Finally, do you think the trip is relatively well planned, and, if it were you, where would you spend your first 5 nights in Japan?

Thanks fellow Chowhounders!
