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.
Toji and Kodai-ji Temple will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine and Toshodai-ji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho), Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple (in Otsu) and Kyoto (Nishi Honganji, Jojakkoji Temple, &more). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hōzen-ji Temple, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, and get to know the fascinating history of Hozenji Yokocho.
