Osaka

— 24 nights
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 outdoors at Four-M and Eeyan. Head to Dotombori District and Minami (Namba)for some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Mino (Saisai Mimasaka, Mino Saito, Waterfall of Mino, &more), Museum of Osaka University (in Toyonaka) and Kanan-cho (World Country Golf Club & Chikatsu Asuka Museum). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, explore the world behind art at Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum, examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.

To find reviews, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Osaka route planner.

Osaka Prefecture is a prefecture located in the Kansai region on Honshu, the main island of Japan. The capital is the city of Osaka. It is the center of Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto area. Osaka is one of the two "urban prefectures" of Japan, Kyoto being the other (Tokyo became a "metropolitan prefecture", or to, in 1941).HistoryUntil the Meiji Restoration, the area of Osaka prefecture was known as Kawachi, Izumi, and Settsu provinces.Osaka Prefecture was created on June 21, 1868, at the very beginning of the Meiji era. During the instigation of Fuhanken Sanchisei in 1868, the prefecture received its suffix fu, designating it as an urban prefecture.On September 1, 1956, the city of Osaka was promoted to a city designated by government ordinance and thereby divided into 24 wards.In 2000, Fusae Ota became Japan's first female governor when she replaced Knock Yokoyama, who resigned after prosecution for sexual harassment.
