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.
Kyoto International Manga Museum and Kyoto National Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Shop till you drop at Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo), Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum (in Higashinada) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Gion, examine the collection at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
