Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Miyakojima is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Miyakojima due to the time zone difference. In August, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 31°C.

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.
On the 14th (Fri), take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and then get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori. On your second day here, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, then contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and then steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Osaka trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

You can fly from Ishigaki to Osaka in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train. August in Osaka sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
