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 Kyoto National Museum and Osaka Castle. Kyoto International Manga Museum and Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nara Park), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). The adventure continues: shop like a local with Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, examine the collection at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji.
