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.
You'll explore and learn at Kyoto International Manga Museum and Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gion and Nara Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center), Higashiyama (Sanjusangendo Temple & Kiyomizu-dera Temple) and Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & The Museum of Kyoto). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, and examine the collection at Museum of Oriental Ceramics.
