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.
Relax by the water at Namihaya Beach and Kataonami Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tenryuji Temple and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kodai-ji Temple, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple (in Otsu). The adventure continues: admire the verdant scenery at Arima Onsen, get a taste of the local shopping with Midosuji Street, see the interesting displays at CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA, and steep yourself in history at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine.
