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 your shopping at Dotombori and Nishiki Market Shopping District. Venture out of the city with trips to Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin & Mt. Koya), Kobe (Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown) & Kobe Harborland) and Kyoto (Gion, Pontocho, &more). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kasuga Grand Shrine, pause for some photo ops at Todai-ji Temple, and identify plant and animal life at Nara Park.
