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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Dotonbori. Let the collections at Todaiji Temple Cultural Center and Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Nara Park (in Nara), Kyoto (Gion & Kyoto National Museum) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple). The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, examine the collection at The World Money Box Museum, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, and take an in-depth tour of Muko City Cultural Museum.

You can plan Osaka trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Osaka are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
