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 Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tenryuji Temple and Nanzen-ji Temple. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Hase-dera Temple (in Sakurai), Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & Pontocho) and Nara (Nigatsu-do Temple, Nara Park, & more). The adventure continues: explore the engaging exhibits at Kids Plaza Osaka, wander the streets of Minami (Namba), make a trip to Gion, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nishi Honganji.
