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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mt. Koya and Mint Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Nara Park and Tannowa Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Kyoto Railway Museum, Kyoto International Manga Museum, & more), CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda) and Koya-cho (Koyasan Reihokan Museum & Koyasan Okunoin). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, get engrossed in the history at Nara National Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nigatsu-do Temple.

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 32°C in June, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
