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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Tannowa Beach and Nara Park. Let the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Wakayama Castle (in Wakayama), Rinku Premium Outlets (in Izumisano) and Koya-cho (Koyasan Danjo Garan, Kongobu-ji Temple, & more). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Gion, see the interesting displays at Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, explore the historical opulence of Nijo-jo Castle, and take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

To see photos, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Osaka holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
