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 out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Toji (in Kyoto) and Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori.
