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 some cultural insight at Gion and Dotonbori. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Nara (Nara National Museum, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, & more) and Kyoto (Kyoto International Manga Museum, Kyoto National Museum, & more). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and see the interesting displays at Kusuri no Yakata.
