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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Nijo Castle, &more) and Himeji Castle (in Himeji). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, go for a walk through Ukiyokoji Street, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

To see reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Osaka trip planner.

If you are flying in from Vietnam, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. February in Osaka sees daily highs of °C and lows of °C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
