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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kiyomizu-dera, & more). There's more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

To see ratings, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the Osaka trip itinerary maker.

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 November, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
