Osaka
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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nijo-jo Castle and Sanjusangendo Temple. Get in touch with nature at Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Mt. Kurama. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kobe (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum & Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution), Kyoto (Gion, Shosei-en Garden, & more) and Nara (Nara Park, Mt. Wakakusa, & more). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Dotonbori, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In July in Osaka, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
