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). Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Mt. Koya (in Koya-cho), Akashi (Amore Beach & Matsue Swimming Beach) and Kyoto (Gion, Nijo Castle, &more). And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, stroll around Nara Park, get all the equipment you need at Four-M, and appreciate the history behind Todai-ji Temple.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport.
