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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama), Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji & Gion) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
