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 Kids Plaza Osaka and Mt. Kurama. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto Railway Museum and CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Mimurotoji Temple (in Uji), Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple, Koyasan Okunoin, & more) and Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Kennin-ji Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Dotonbori, examine the collection at Glico Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hankyu Umeda Main Store.
