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.
Visiting Nara Park and Geisha and Maiko Makeover Experience in Kyoto Gion Aya will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkaku-ji. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Kodai-ji Temple, Gion, &more), Himeji (Himeji Castle, Koko-en, &more) and Mt. Yoshino (in Yoshino-cho). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Dotombori, and pause for some photo ops at Todai-ji Temple.
