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: Nara (Tōdai-ji, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more), Kyoto (Fushimi Inari Taisha, Gion, & more) and Byodoin (in Uji). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Shinsaibashi, don't miss a visit to Dotonbori, and admire the striking features of Kuchu Teien Observatory.
