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.
Visiting Nara Park and Mt. Takao will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Tofuku-ji Temple and Hikone Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Ise Shrine Geku (in Ise), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kyoto (Nishi Honganji, Kamigamo Shrine, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Horyu-ji Temple, get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori, steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.
