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.
Head to Dotonbori and Minami (Namba)for plenty of shopping. You'll get in some beach time at Namihaya Beach and Tannowa Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Nijo-jo Castle, Gion, & more), Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin & Mt. Koya) and Waterfall of Mino (in Mino). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park, let little ones run wild at Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach, examine the collection at Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, and soak in some Japanese tradition at Arima Onsen.
