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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and examine the collection at Mizuno Sportology Gallery.

To see photos, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Osaka travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from South Korea, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
