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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Tempozan Ferris Wheel, Last Samurai, Kuromon Market, and other attractions you added. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Nara Park (in Nara) and Himeji (Himeji Castle & Koko-en Garden). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe.

To find photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, use the Osaka travel route planner.

Osaka is just a short distance from Kyoto. In November, plan for daily highs up to 20°C, and evening lows to 10°C. On the 17th (Sun), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Tokyo.
