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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Osaka Castle and Osaka City Central Hall. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, wander the streets of Midosuji Street, don't miss a visit to Osaka Takoyaki Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Nagai Botanical Garden.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, read our Osaka road trip planning site.
