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.
Head to Minami (Namba) and Daimaru Museum Umedafor plenty of shopping. Popular historic sites such as Tenryuji Temple and Toji are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Higashiyama (Tofuku-ji Temple, Chion-in Temple, & more), Midori no Bunkaen (in Shijonawate) and Daigo-ji Temple (in Fushimi). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Ise Shrine Geku, contemplate the long history of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamigamo Shrine, and explore the historical opulence of Hikone Castle.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Osaka trip maker site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 68°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
