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.
Family-friendly places like Universal Studios Japan and Nara Park will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more), Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin & Mount Koyasan) and KidZania Koshien (in Nishinomiya). Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, get to know the fascinating history of Hozenji Yokocho, wander the streets of Dotonbori, and examine the collection at Todaiji Temple Cultural Center.
