Tradition by day and neon by night, Minami is the place to come for Osaka history: Japan's oldest temple, a breathtaking collection of Japanese art in the Municipal Museum of Fine Art, and a mausoleum bigger than the pyramids. And then youth culture takes over: this is where future fashionistas forge the haute couture of tomorrow. Amid all this modernity are glimpses of an older Osaka in sites like Shin Sekai and Tenno-ji Temple.
