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 (Arashiyama, Chishaku-in Meisho Garden, & more), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, contemplate the long history of Todai-ji Temple, and examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.
