Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Bring the kids along to Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Nijo Castle, &more). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan and visit Dotombori District.

To see ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Osaka tour itinerary planner.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel to Hiroshima.
