days
Osaka

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kiyomizu-dera, & more). There's more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

To see maps, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
