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 hidden gems such as Nanzen-ji Temple and Minami (Namba). Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Honten. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Eikando Zenrinji Temple (in Kyoto), Nishiki Market Shopping District (in Nakagyo) and Amanohashidate (in Miyazu). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, examine the collection at Kids Plaza Osaka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tofuku-ji Temple, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Koyasan Okunoin.
