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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Koyasan Okunoin and Tofuku-ji Temple. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & Hayakawa Hamonoten) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tenryuji Temple, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. February in Osaka sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 1°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
