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 Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Hontenfor plenty of shopping. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nanzen-ji Temple and Minami (Namba). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Sanzen-in Temple, Eikando Zenrinji Temple, &more), Cup Noodle Museum Osaka Ikeda (in Ikeda) and Mt. Kurama (in Sakyo). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Tofuku-ji Temple, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Chion-in Temple.
