Osaka

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.
Head to Hankyu Umeda Honten and America Murafor some retail therapy. Discover out-of-the-way places like Kyoto Gyoen National Garden and Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Gio-ji Temple, Yasakanoto, &more), Nara (Gango-ji Temple, Mt. Wakakusa, &more) and Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu). The adventure continues: stroll around Kemasakuranomiya Park, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, enjoy breathtaking views from Harukas 300 Observation Deck, and steep yourself in history at Osaka City Central Hall.
