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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gion and Nijo Castle. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Nishiki Market. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Hosomi Museum, & more), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). Treat yourself to a day of pampering on the 8th (Mon) at some of the best spas. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, examine the collection at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, walk around Nara Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Todai-ji Temple.

If you are flying in from Vietnam, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
