Osaka

3.8
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. A tour of Osaka reveals a city with little obvious tourist appeal--expect buildings designed to look like boxes, elevated highways, and nondescript residential areas. But scratch just below the surface, and you'll discover a city with unexpected architectural gems, outstanding shopping options, and a lively culinary scene known by the phrase "kuidaore"--eat until you drop. Osaka is in Osaka Prefecture. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Osaka and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
