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 list of things to see and do now includes Shinsekai, Abeno Harukas, Osaka Castle, and other attractions. There's more to do: take a stroll through Dotonbori and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.
