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 some cultural sightseeing at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Osaka Castle. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple (in Otsu), Kyoto (Kodai-ji Temple, Kennin-ji Temple, &more) and Koyasan Okunoin (in Koya-cho). Next up on the itinerary: shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and visit Minami (Namba).
