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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Nijo Castle, &more). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory.

To find maps, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Osaka trip planner.
