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.
Step out of the city life by going to Mt. Koya and Eeyan. Visit Osaka Castle and Koyasan Okunoin for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Wakayama (Shikinosato Park, Kii Fudoki No Oka Museum of Archaeology and Folklore, & more), Kainan (Chohoji Temple, Lake Kumo, & more) and Tanabe (Michi-no-Eki Tanabe City Ryujin Gomasan Sky Tower, Gomasan Sky Tower, & more). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, see the interesting displays at Kurozuka Kofun Museum, wander the streets of Dotonbori, and get engrossed in the history at Peace Osaka.

To find where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka road trip website .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in October, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
