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.
Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Minami (Namba). You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kasuga Grand Shrine and Tofuku-ji Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Arima Onsen (in Kita), Kyoto (Nanzen-ji Temple, Kinkaku-ji, & more) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Chion-in Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, get to know the fascinating history of Hozenji Yokocho, stroll around Nara Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Nigatsu-do Temple.

April in Osaka sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 12°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
