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 Dotombori District and Kyoto Station Building. Kids will enjoy Universal Studios Japan and Arashiyama. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown) (in Kobe). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, get in on the family fun at SpaWorld, get a taste of the local shopping with Hankyu Umeda Honten, and wander the streets of Minami (Namba).

For maps, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Osaka road trip website.

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
