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 Dotombori District and Tofuku-ji Temple. Discover out-of-the-way places like Tenryuji Temple and Kennin-ji Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji, Kyoto Railway Museum, &more), Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple, Koyasan Okunoin, &more) and Mimurotoji Temple (in Uji). Next up on the itinerary: shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Toshodai-ji Temple, see the interesting displays at Glico Museum, and make a trip to Tempozan Ferris Wheel.

Hong Kong, China to Osaka is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and ferry; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Hong Kong to Osaka. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Hong Kong in July since evenings lows in Osaka dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
