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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, learn something new at Ninja-Do, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
