Osaka, Japan

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Gion, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more), Genpinan (in Sakurai) and Himeji Castle (in Himeji). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park, get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya.

You can plan Osaka trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
