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.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Fri): explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. On your second day here, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kofuku-ji Temple, see the interesting displays at Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, then look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park, and finally shop like a local with Dotonbori.
