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.
You've now added Dotonbori to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 7th (Thu): get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan and then enjoy breathtaking views from Kuchu Teien Observatory. Keep things going the next day: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, make a trip to Kuromon Market, walk around Nara Park, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kasuga Grand Shrine, and finally wander the streets of Dotonbori.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Osaka trip simple and quick.

In November in Osaka, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 10°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can catch the train to Kyoto.
