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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Nara (Kasugayama, Kasuga Grand Shrine, &more) and Himeji (Nagoyama Reien Busharito, Koko-en, &more). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, wander the streets of Dotombori District, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

Plan my day in Osaka using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Bengaluru, India to Osaka is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Traveling from Bengaluru to Osaka, you'll lose 3.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Bengaluru in March, expect Osaka to be colder, temps between 16°C and 5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to catch the train to Kyoto.
