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've added Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Kobe Port Tower, Ikuta Shrine, and other attractions to your itinerary.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka road trip planner .

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Osaka is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and bus.
