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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tenryuji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple. Escape the urban bustle at Nara Park and Mt. Kurama. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Byodoin (in Uji), Arima Onsen (in Kita) and Otsu (Emperor Kobun Cemetery, Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple), & more). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Gion, steep yourself in history at Daigo-ji Temple, and see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.
