Useful tips for visiting Osaka
Autumn is a pleasant season to tour Osaka, and temperatures in November range from a high of 18°C to a low of 9°C. Given that the early mornings and evenings can get chilly, we suggest packing layers to keep warm. Do also bring a rain jacket as you may experience some wet weather.
To get around the country with ease, you can purchase a Japan Rail Pass (only available to visiting tourists), which offers unlimited rides on Japan Rail national trains for a duration of seven, 14 or 21 days. Within Osaka, you can take advantage of the Osaka Amazing Pass, which can be obtained for a one- or two-day period. This gives you unlimited train and bus rides, plus entry to around 40 popular attractions.
And while it’s easy to get caught up admiring the fall foliage, don’t forget to make some time to check out Osaka’s culinary scene – after all, it’s dubbed Japan’s food capital for good reason. You’ll find plenty of stellar street-food vendors, intimate izakaya joints and top-notch restaurants to refuel at after a long day of sightseeing.
