Osaka
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.
Get some historical perspective at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkaku-ji. Get outdoors at Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Mt. Kurama. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Gion, & more), Mount Miwa (in Sakurai) and Nara (Mt. Wakakusa, Nara Park, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Koyasan, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, make a trip to Shinsaibashi, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
