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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Universal Studios Japan and SpaWorld. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Kyoto (Arashiyama, Gion, & more). There's lots more to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Himeji Castle, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.
