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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street as well as Dotombori District. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Todai-ji Temple (in Nara) and Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Gion). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, expand your horizons at Ninja-Do, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hōzen-ji Temple.

To find reviews, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Osaka trip app.

Taipei, Taiwan to Osaka is an approximately 7-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Taipei to Osaka. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Taipei in May: high temperatures in Osaka hover around °C and lows are around °C. On the 7th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Tokyo.
