Osaka
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.
Visiting Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum (in Kobe), Kyoto (Nijo-jo Castle, Gion, & more) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Kofuku-ji Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, and contemplate the long history of Osaka City Central Hall.
