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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Sanjusangendo Temple. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nara (Nara Park & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center), Muko City Cultural Museum (in Muko) and Kyoto (Gion, Nijo Castle, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, wander the streets of Dotombori District, examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, and find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan.
