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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Gion and Dotonbori. Nijo Castle and Sanjusangendo Temple will appeal to history buffs. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, Ginkaku-ji Temple, & more), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, see the interesting displays at Mint Museum, view the masterpieces at Hankyu Umeda Gallery, and take an in-depth tour of The Museum of Kyoto.
