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.
Get some historical perspective at Tenryuji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple. Visiting Nara Park and Rokuen will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kodai-ji Temple (in Higashiyama), Nigatsu-do Temple (in Nara) and Kyoto (Toji, Shimogamo Jinja, & more). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Midosuji Street, don't miss a visit to Hozenji Yokocho, and contemplate the long history of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine.
