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've now added Osaka-Kizu Wholesale Market to your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Kyoto (Arashiyama, Gion, & more) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.
