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.
Visit Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Himeji Castle for their historical value. Kyoto National Museum and Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nara Park), Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Gion, &more) and Ibaraki City Cultural Museum (in Ibaraki). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, see the interesting displays at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya.
