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 outdoors at Nara Park and Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach. Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Osaka Castle will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara), Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe) and Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kyoto National Museum, &more). Pack the 25th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Hirakata Park. The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, wander the streets of Dotombori District, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
