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.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sun): take in nature's colorful creations at Sakuya Konohanakan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sekime Shrine, look for all kinds of wild species at Rokuen, then contemplate the long history of Naramachi Koshino Ie, then stroll through Yoshikien, and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours. Keep things going the next day: contemplate the long history of Tekijuku, examine the collection at Modern Transportation Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, contemplate the long history of Yasui no Shimizu, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Yasui Shrine, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Namba Yasaka Shrine.
