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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Okunoin and Nijo Castle. Escape the urban bustle at Mount Koyasan and Nara Park. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera, Fushimi Inari Taisha, & more), Tōdai-ji (in Nara) and Kongobu-ji Temple (in Koya-cho). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Dotonbori, find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, and shop like a local with Minami (Namba).
