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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Main Store. Explore hidden gems such as Nanzen-ji Temple and Toji. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Nara Park, & more), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Tofuku-ji Temple, & more) and Kyoto (Sanzen-in Temple, Jojakkoji Temple, & more). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Universal City Walk Osaka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Toshodaiji Temple, wander the streets of Minami (Namba), and steep yourself in history at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine.
