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 Dotonbori and Osaka Castle. Discover out-of-the-way places like Kasuga Grand Shrine and Koyasan Danjo Garan. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Mt. Koya (in Koya-cho) and Nara Park (in Nara). There's more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Minami (Namba).

For reviews, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Osaka trip itinerary maker website .

Jakarta, Indonesia to Osaka is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Osaka due to the time zone difference. Expect cooler temperatures when traveling from Jakarta in April; daily highs in Osaka reach 23°C and lows reach 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) early enough to take a train to Kyoto.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Nijo Castle and Kinkaku-ji. Explore hidden gems such as Daigo-ji Temple and Monkey Park Iwatayama. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Moku Moku Farm (in Iga) and Mitsui Outlet Park Shiga Ryuo (in Ryuo-cho). And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Kyoto Station Building, get in on the family fun at Toei Kyoto Studio Park, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Kyoto Aquarium.
