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 enjoy Universal Studios Japan and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Nishiki Market Shopping District, &more). Next up on the itinerary: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.
