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.
Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Minami (Namba). Get some historical perspective at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Osaka Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu), Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). And it doesn't end there: walk around Nara Park, step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, wander the streets of Gion, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple.
