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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotombori District and Minami (Namba). Let the collections at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum and Kids Plaza Osaka capture your imagination. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, wander the streets of Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, don't miss a visit to Tenjimbashisuji Shopping Street, and explore the galleries of Mint Museum.
