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 Dotombori District and Minami (Namba). For shopping fun, head to Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street or Tenjimbashisuji Shopping Street. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take in the exciting artwork at Hankyu Umeda Gallery, see the interesting displays at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, and meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
