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.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Fri): examine the collection at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, see the interesting displays at Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, then see the interesting displays at Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum, and finally take a stroll through Minami (Namba). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: wander the streets of Shinsaibashi and then wander the streets of Dotonbori.
