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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Himeji Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ginkakuji Temple, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
