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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan and wander the streets of Dotombori.

For photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka day trip app.

Sydney, Australia to Osaka is an approximately 13- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight, bus, and train. Traveling from Sydney to Osaka, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Sydney in April, with highs in Osaka at 23°C and lows at 12°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel to Hiroshima.
