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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Kinkaku-ji & Gion), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle and observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka online tour itinerary maker .

Take a train from Tokyo to Osaka in 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. On the 21st (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Tokyo.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi), Tokyo DisneySea (in Maihama) and Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi). See some other sides of Tokyo: don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, explore the galleries of Tokyo National Museum, take a stroll through Odaiba, and take some stellar pictures from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

To find photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Tokyo trip planner.

Getting from Osaka to Tokyo by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. You will have some time to spend on the 28th (Thu) before leaving for home.
