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 list of things to see and do now includes Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Osaka Castle, Universal Studios Japan, and other attractions. Start off your visit on the 28th (Wed): admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, then step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, then wander the streets of Dotonbori, and finally find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Osaka trip planner.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Osaka is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of bus, flight, and train. Traveling from Jakarta to Osaka, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Jakarta in June, expect nights in Osaka to be about the same, around 26°C, while days are slightly colder, around 32°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to catch the train to Kobe.
