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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Kids Plaza Osaka and Universal Studios Japan. Explore hidden gems such as Walking tours and Hozenji Yokocho. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Sakurai (Hase-dera Temple & Omiwa Shrine), Nara (Hayama Suzuran Gunraku, Nara Park, & more) and Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Jojakkoji Temple, contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and admire the natural beauty at Nanzen-ji Temple.
