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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Tenryuji Temple and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Nanzen-ji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Chion-in Temple & Kodai-ji Temple), Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Mt. Wakakusa, & more) and Kyoto (Kennin-ji Temple, Shimogamo Jinja, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, get to know the fascinating history of Ise Shrine Geku, take a stroll through Minami (Namba), and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Kurama.
