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: Higashiyama (Sanjusangendo Temple & Kiyomizu-dera Temple), Kyoto (Gion & Arashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, don't miss a visit to Ajigawa Tunnel, take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
