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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji & Gion). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and take a stroll through Dotonbori.
