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 your shopping at Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Gallery. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mt. Koya and CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Koya-cho (Koyasan Reihokan Museum & Koyasan Okunoin), Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara) and Jikko Cutlery (in Sakai). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Mint Museum, contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and appreciate the views at Mitarai Valley.
