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.
Get in touch with nature at Arima Onsen and Mt. Koya. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Hankyu Umeda Honten and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Akame Shijuhachi Waterfall (in Nabari), Kishiwada CanCan Bayside Mall (in Kishiwada) and Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple & Koyasan Okunoin). Next up on the itinerary: have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, examine the collection at Kids Plaza Osaka, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Eikando Zenrinji Temple, and admire the sheer force of Waterfall of Mino.
