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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle and meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
