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 Hankyu Umeda Main Store and Dotonbori. Get in touch with nature at Omimaiko Beach and Mt. Kurama. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Hase-dera Temple (in Sakurai), Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin, Kongobu-ji Temple, & more) and Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, don't miss a visit to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip app .

August in Osaka sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
