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.
Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, expand your horizons at Ninja-Do, get engrossed in the history at Osaka Museum of History, and stop by Four-M.
