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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Koyasan Okunoin and Mt. Koya. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more), Tanizeno Tsuribashi (in Totsukawa-mura) and Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple, Koyasan Danjo Garan, & more). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, explore the historical opulence of Wakayama Castle, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

To see other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Osaka tour builder website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 10°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
