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.
On the 12th (Sun), get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori and then get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. Keep things going the next day: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, then find something for the whole family at Spa World, and then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
