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.
You've now added Dotonbori to your itinerary. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
