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.
Visit Nijo Castle and Sanjusangendo Temple for their historical value. Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, Namikawa Yasuyuki Sippo Memorial Museum, & more), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, appreciate the history behind Todai-ji Temple, take an in-depth tour of Kofuku-ji Temple National Treasure Hall, and see the interesting displays at National Museum of Ethnology.

If you are flying in from Mongolia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in May, and nighttime lows around 18°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
