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.
Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Hirakata Park (in Hirakata) and Minoh Park (in Mino). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

To find maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka attractions planning app .

Sydney, Australia to Osaka is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Sydney to Osaka. Traveling from Sydney in March, things will get much colder in Osaka: highs are around 15°C and lows about 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to travel to Kochi.
