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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Your inner history buff will appreciate Nijo Castle and Osaka Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Nara Park & Todai-ji Temple) and Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji & Gion). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Dotonbori, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and stroll the grounds of Isshinji Temple.
