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 Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle) and Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Arashiyama, & more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, go for a walk through Himeji Castle, and pause for some photo ops at Todai-ji Temple.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read Osaka day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. May in Osaka sees daily highs of 29°C and lows of 18°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
