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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nara Park (in Nara), Kyoto (Chion-in Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, and wander the streets of Dotombori District.
