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.
Visit Nijo-jo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Dotonbori. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Omihachiman (Omihachiman Hachiman Elementary School & Hachiman-bori), Kyoto (Kyoto Station Building, Kyoto Tower, & more) and Mitsui Outlet Park Shiga Ryuo (in Ryuo-cho). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Cup Noodle Mueseum, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Koyasan, shop like a local with Minami (Namba), and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 74°F, while at night they dip to 59°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
