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.
Explore hidden gems such as Tenryuji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple. Get a sense of the local culture at Nanzen-ji Temple and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Toji, Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple, & more), Sakyo (Mt. Kurama & Kifune-jinja Shrine) and Pontocho (in Nakagyo). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kongobu-ji Temple, steep yourself in history at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, and shop like a local with Minami (Namba).
