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.
Visiting Philosopher's Walk and Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Kiyomizu-dera and Nijo Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Shugakuin Imperial Villa, Nishiki Market, & more), Koya-cho (Mount Koyasan & Okunoin) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Nara Park, & more). Spend the 25th (Tue) exploring nature at Akashi Kaikyo National Gorvernment Park. The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, get great views at Tempozan Ferris Wheel, and wander the streets of Dotonbori.
