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 some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Jikko Cutlery. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara (Nara National Museum & Nara Park), Koya-cho (Koyasan Reihokan Museum, Koyasan Okunoin, & more) and Kyoto (Gion, Kinkaku-ji, & more). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, take an in-depth tour of Kii Fudoki No Oka Museum of Archaeology and Folklore, and steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple.

Make your Osaka itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
