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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Kyoto Station Building, Nishiki Market Shopping District, &more). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Mizuno Sportology Gallery, don't miss a visit to Hep Five Ferris Wheel, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hōzen-ji Temple, and look for gifts at Shimada Shoten.
