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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Gion, Arashiyama, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, make a trip to Ukiyokoji Street, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, and identify plant and animal life at Nara Park.

Discover how to plan a Osaka trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
