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.
Visiting Mt. Kurama and Waterfall of Mino will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Toji. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Otsu (Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) & Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple), Higashiyama (Tofuku-ji Temple, Kodai-ji Temple, & more) and Kofuku-ji Temple (in Nara). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanzen-in Temple, make a trip to Hōzen-ji Temple, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and have fun and explore at Kids Plaza Osaka.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Osaka driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. November in Osaka sees daily highs of 20°C and lows of 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
