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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Todai-ji Temple (in Nara). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, enjoy breathtaking views from Kuchu Teien Observatory, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

For other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Osaka day trip website.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. October in Osaka sees daily highs of °C and lows of °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
