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.
On the 11th (Tue), examine the collection at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and then get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 12th (Wed): step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senko-ji Temple, then observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and finally take a stroll through Dotonbori.
