days
Osaka

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.
Appreciate the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto International Manga Museum. You'll get in some beach time at Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Tannowa Beach. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Keage Incline, Kodai-ji Temple, & more), Mitsui Outlet Park Shiga Ryuo (in Ryuo-cho) and Koya-cho (Okunoin, Mount Koyasan, & more). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Dotonbori, examine the collection at Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tōdai-ji, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Arima Onsen.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Osaka travel planner.

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 January in Osaka, expect temperatures between 47°F during the day and 37°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
