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.
You've added Universal Studios Japan, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and other attractions to your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Nara Park in Nara (about 54 minutes away). The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, look for gifts at Shimada Shoten, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
