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.
Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Nara Park & Nigatsu-do Temple), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, &more). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, find something for the whole family at SpaWorld, get a taste of the local shopping with Dotombori District, and get your game on at Ninja-Do.

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Osaka holiday builder website.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. May in Osaka sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
