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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Himeji (Koko-en, Himeji Castle, &more), Kyoto (Hosomi Museum, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park, take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory, and contemplate the long history of Todai-ji Temple.
