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.
Shop till you drop at Hankyu Umeda Main Store and Dotonbori. Appreciate the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Mint Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Ikaruga-cho (Mimuroyama & Horyu-ji Temple), Kashihara Jingu (in Kashihara) and Yoshino-cho (Kinpusenji Temple & Mt. Yoshino). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Minami (Namba), take in the spiritual surroundings of Hase-dera Temple, don't miss a visit to Tempozan Ferris Wheel, and explore the world behind art at Miho Museum.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
