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.
For shopping fun, head to Dotombori District or Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. Get a sense of the local culture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Osaka Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Kofuku-ji Temple, &more), Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach (in Ashiya) and Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Gion, &more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya, don't miss a visit to Osaka City Central Hall, and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.
