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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Akiba Kart Osaka, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street and MariCAR Osaka. Popular historic sites such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Kinkaku-ji are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Kyoto International Manga Museum and Hosomi Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan & Gion), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo).
