Osaka

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.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Sun): shop like a local with Shinsaibashisuji Shopping Arcade and then wander the streets of Minami (Namba).

To find more things to do, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Osaka trip builder.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Osaka is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of bus, flight, and train. The time zone difference moving from West Indonesia Time (WIB) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 2 hours. While traveling from Jakarta, expect slightly colder days and about the same nights in Osaka, ranging from highs of 33°C to lows of 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to take a train to Kyoto.
