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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nijo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Gion, & more), Nara (Nara Park & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, see the interesting displays at Jikko Cutlery, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Osaka trip planner.
