Help with 2 nights in Osaka

by aznaphrodite

We are traveling to Osaka at the end of March. We will be arriving at 6 pm on a Wednesday night and plan to be at the pier to board a cruise at 5 pm on Friday. I'm assuming I won't get any sightseeing done on Wednesday and plan to explore Namba's nightlight that evening. If I take a day trip to Kyoto on Thursday, do you think spending Friday until 5 pm is enough to see Osaka? Or should I skip the day trip to Kyoto and focus on seeing Osaka the entire time? (We do plan to return to Japan in a few years so I could go to Kyoto then.)

Thanks in advance!!

Given the choice, I would skip Osaka and spend the time in Kyoto.

While Osaka has a few sites, these are totally blown away by Kyoto. We spent a full week in Kyoto and still missed a few places we wanted to see.

Take the trip to Kyoto. Schedule in a river cruise for Friday as per the previous Osaka post, or just wander around Shinsaibashi. Enjoy Dotombori on Wednesday. You can never have enough days to see everything no matter where you go in the world, so just relax and enjoy what you can.

Kyoto should not be rushed as posted by others. it takes a few days just to have the country sink in so take your time if in a few years , you will return anyway. Cheers Tommy x

It's hard for me to tell you to go to Kyoto, but it's also hard for me to say skip it. I think you can see enough of Osaka in a day or two, and as mentioned, it can take a few days if not more to go to Kyoto. If you just want a taste of Kyoto, go for the day as it will be worth it. The second trip will be much easier as you know the basics of getting around and you'll be able to see more at a relaxed pace.

In reality, I'd say wait until you arrive in Osaka to make up your mind. Kyoto for a day trip is easy as is. Just hop on the train and you can return to Osaka for the night.

You could go straight to Kyoto from Kansai airport on Wednesday so that you can spend all day Thursday in Kyoto. If you are interested in seeing Namba at night, travel to Osaka Thursday night. But, I'd spend Thursday night in Kyoto, too, and travel to Osaka Friday morning, if I were you.

Thanks for the advice, everyone! We have a lot to think about!

Let's agree to diagree on Osaka / Kyoto.

Yes, Osaka has some very nice places, but Kyoto so totally blows it away. We spent almost a week in Kyoto and just barely scratched the surface of that city.

Having been the Imperial Capital for over 1000 years, Kyoto sets a high bar for neighbouring cities, certainly from a culture standpoint.

Travel Tips for Osaka

Coin Laundry Near Osaka Station

by jukebox333

Just in case anyone else needs to know, we found that the Hearton Hotel, 2 mins walk west of Osaka Station (and near the Hilton, Granvia and other hotels), has a coin laundry open to the public, on B1.

Climb Minoo Mountain

by heya

About forty minutes away from Namba is Minoo mountain. The waterfall is a little touristy, but it's a nice, easy hike. If you continue up the road a few miles, there is a temple worth visiting. In nicer weather, monkeys wander the area. My former roommate swears one jumped out of a tree, ran up to her, grabbed her soda out of her hand, swigged it up, then ran away. It snowed when we walked up there in December and the views were magical.

Getting around conveniently

by yukisanto

The Surutto Kansai card is a must. We bought the 3000yen stored value card. It comes in 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000. What it is good for is that you use it on all the buses, trains (except JR) and subways in Kansai area, including Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kobe etc. It doesn't give you a discount, but at least you don't have to fiddle for change or worry about the fare amount. It deducts automatically when you insert it into the machine beside the driver when you get down. Convenient. And it makes for a good souvenir too, coze each time the fare is deducted, it will be printed on the reverse side of the card.

You can buy this card at the train (except JR) and subway stations.

Hankyu Ferris Wheel

by elPierro

This is not recommended if you are afraid of heights! But otherwhise, give it a go. Located in the Hankyu Shopping Mall they have build a ferris wheel with the heighest point at 106 meters!

The ride takes about 15 minutes and costs 500 Yen (as usual in Japan, you have to buy the ticket at the vending machine). The wheel operates also late so this is the spot for day/night views of Osaka. You don't get as high as the Umeda Sky Building, but in my opinion taking a ferris wheel on top of a shopping center is still a bit more exiting and the view is great.

The Science Museum

by PartyRambo

Back in Toronto where I grew up, is the Ontario Science Centre, globally recognized as perhaps the finest (and first!) facility of its kind in the world.
As a kid, I was constantly fascinated by the hands-on approach to learning, as the exhibits offered fun & information at the same time.
It helped that the founder of the centre was a friend of my grandparents, so my brother & I occasionally got in free (!)
I don't believe that learning ever ends. There's always something new to discover, and it can't hurt to refresh yourself on the basics once in a while... true, if you're a rocket scientist, it might be somewhat boring...
I therefore have a fondness for science museums in general, and 'hands-on' places in particular, and headed out one day for Osaka's entry - opened in october 1989, the hall contains 230 exhibits, the world's largest domed planetarium screen, and the world's largest image system, the OMNIMAX.
