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.
Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Koya-cho (Okunoin, Kongobu-ji Temple, & more) and Byodoin (in Uji). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and laugh and play at Spa World.
