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 Osaka's surroundings by going to Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Tofuku-ji Temple, & more), Katsura Imperial Villa (in Nishikyo) and Kyoto (Kyoto Station Building, Kyoto International Manga Museum, & more). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, contemplate the long history of Himeji Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ginkakuji Temple, and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

To see maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Osaka online attractions planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in January, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
