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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Gion and Nara Park. Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Fuuka-Kimono. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nara (Saho River, Todai-ji Temple, & more), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May in Osaka, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 18°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
