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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Himeji (Nagoyama Reien Busharito, Koko-en, &more) and Nara (Kasugayama, Kasuga Grand Shrine, &more). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and take a stroll through Dotonbori.
