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 Osaka's surroundings by going to Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Narazuhiko Shrine, &more), Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin, Kongobu-ji Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, visit Dotombori District, steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, and admire the landmark architecture of Minami Co., Ltd..
