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 Kyoto (Gion, Kinkaku-ji, &more), Koya-cho (Koyasan Reihokan Museum & Mt. Koya) and Nagaokakyo Maizo Bunkazai Center (in Nagaokakyo). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.
