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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Nijo Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine). The adventure continues: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
