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 Akiba Kart Osaka as well as Osaka Castle. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle. Change things up with a short trip to Hosomi Museum in Kyoto (about 1h 20 min away). There's more to do: take a stroll through Dotonbori.

For maps, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
