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.
Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kyoto Isshu Trail, Higahiyama Fuahimi Inari Course, &more), Himeji (Koko-en, Himeji Castle, &more) and Byodoin (in Uji). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, wander the streets of Dotombori District, steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, and pause for some photo ops at Todai-ji Temple.
