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.
Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan will appeal to museum buffs. Family-friendly places like Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Nara Park will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara) and Kyoto (Nijo-jo Castle, Kyoto International Manga Museum, & more). There's more to do: shop like a local with Dotonbori and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.
