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 Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. Step out of Osaka with an excursion to Nijo Castle in Kyoto--about 1 hour away. Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with Dotombori District, get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, enjoy breathtaking views from Kuchu Teien Observatory, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

Hong Kong, China to Osaka is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and ferry; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Hong Kong to Osaka due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Hong Kong in January, with highs in Osaka at °C and lows at °C.
