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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gion and Kinkaku-ji. Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Himeji Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Shoren-in Temple (Shoren-in Monzeki), Nishiki Market, & more), Higashiyama (Sanjusangendo Temple & Kiyomizu-dera Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, stroll through Katsura Imperial Villa, wander the streets of Dotonbori, and walk around Nara Park.

To find maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Osaka driving holiday website .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Osaka are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
