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.Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine and Umeda Sky Building. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, enjoy breathtaking views from Tsutenkaku, make a trip to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, and examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.
