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 out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more) and Todai-ji Temple (in Nara). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and admire the striking features of Kuchu Teien Observatory.

For ratings, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Osaka trip maker .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In October in Osaka, expect temperatures between 27°C during the day and 18°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
