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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Tofuku-ji Temple and Koyasan Okunoin. You'll explore and learn at Kyoto Railway Museum and Mint Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Spas, Nishi Honganji, &more), Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu) and Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple & Koyasan Danjo Garan). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hayama Suzuran Gunraku, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kodai-ji Temple, stop by Pontocho, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hankyu Umeda Honten.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
