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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Kyoto (Nishiki Market, Arashiyama, & more) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport.
