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 Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji & Gion). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

Plan trip to Osaka with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Osaka is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time to Japan Standard Time is 1 hour. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in March: high temperatures in Osaka hover around 16°C and lows are around 5°C.
