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: Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & Nishiki Market Shopping District), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Himeji Castle, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.
