Osaka
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.
Get some cultural insight at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Osaka Castle. Popular historic sites such as Kinkaku-ji and Nijo Castle are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kodai-ji Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more), Kyoto (Gion, Kennin-ji Temple, & more) and Mt. Yoshino (in Yoshino-cho). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya, contemplate the long history of Todai-ji Temple, and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.

For other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka attractions planning app .

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
