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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, wander the streets of Gion, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
