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.
Shin Umeda City has been added to your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Nara (Nara Park, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Dotonbori.

For traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka journey builder website .
