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.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Tue): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Todai-ji Temple, then look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park, and then visit Dotombori District. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and then observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Osaka trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Osaka is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Osaka. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Jakarta in June, with highs in Osaka at 32°C and lows at 22°C. On the 27th (Thu), you're off to Akashi.
