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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Dotonbori. Museum-lovers will get to explore Kyoto International Manga Museum and Todaiji Temple Cultural Center. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara (Tōdai-ji & Nara Park) and Kyoto (Fushimi Inari Taisha, Nijo Castle, & more). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and take a stroll through Shinsaibashi.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read our Osaka itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
