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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Tsutenkaku Hondori Shopping Street, Keitaku-en Garden, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and other attractions you added. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take in the pleasant sights at Ukiyokoji Street, and wander the streets of Dotombori District.
