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've now added Osaka Castle Park to your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & NINJA VR KYOTO), Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, Todai-ji Temple, & more) and Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & Nishiki Market Shopping District). The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Dotonbori, get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, and make a trip to Arashiyama.
