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.
Shop till you drop at Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kobe (Chinatown (Nankinmachi) & Kobe Harborland), Kyoto (Gion, Pontocho, & more) and Koya-cho (Okunoin & Mount Koyasan). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tōdai-ji, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and enjoy breathtaking views from Kuchu Teien Observatory.

To find photos, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Osaka sightseeing 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 April, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
