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.
Do your shopping at Dotombori District and Minami (Namba). Discover out-of-the-way places like Tofuku-ji Temple and Cup Noodle Museum Osaka Ikeda. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin & Mt. Koya), Tannowa Beach (in Misaki-cho) and Namihaya Beach (in Wakayama). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, take in the dramatic scenery at Waterfall of Mino, and stroll around Nara Park.
