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.
Kids will enjoy Universal Studios Japan and Nara Park. Head to Dotonbori and Nishiki Marketfor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). Next up on the itinerary: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, look for gifts at Kimono Photo Studio Wasabi Osaka, take a stroll through Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

To find reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Osaka driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
