Osaka

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.
You've added Yoshikien, Nara Park, Pokemon Center Osaka, and other attractions to your itinerary. Your inner history buff will appreciate Nigatsu-do Temple and Hozenji Yokocho. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Toshodai-ji Temple and Mt. Wakakusa.

Plan a trip to Osaka easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Bristol, UK to Osaka is an approximately 18.5-hour combination of train and flight. Traveling from Bristol to Osaka, you'll lose 9 hours due to the time zone difference. In September, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. You'll have a few hours on the 3rd (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.
