Osaka

Osaka
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.
To see photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Osaka travel route site.

Cairns, Australia to Osaka is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Cairns in October, expect Osaka to be little chillier, temps between 26°C and 17°C. You will have some time to spend on the 29th (Tue) before leaving for Tokyo.
