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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gion and Dotonbori. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto National Museum and Todaiji Temple Cultural Center. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & The Museum of Kyoto) and Nara (Nara Park & Todai-ji Temple). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, and see the interesting displays at Kyoto International Manga Museum.

To find photos, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip itinerary planning site .
