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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and get your game on at Ninja-Do.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Osaka trip itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from Iran, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 20°C, and evening lows to 10°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
