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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Gion, Nijo Castle, &more) and Himeji (Nagoyama Reien Busharito, Shoshazan Engyoji, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, make a trip to Tempozan Tosenjo, and get a taste of the local shopping with Dotombori District.

For photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Osaka online attractions planner.

Melbourne, Australia to Osaka is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Melbourne to Osaka due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Melbourne in September, expect nights in Osaka to be much hotter, around 24°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 32°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Tokyo.
