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.
Attractions like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Nijo Castle & Sanjusangendo Temple). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
