About Osaka

Osaka is located on the main island of Honshu, roughly in the center of Japan, and it has the second greatest population in the country.
Since ancient times, Osaka has been a gathering place. Located at the confluence of a vast web of busy river and sea routes, it naturally grew into a flourishing economic center and became the gateway to Japan for travelers and traders from all over Asia.

From the moment of arrival at Kansai International Airport - between 45 and 60 minutes from the city centre - guests of this city are pampered with the finest Osaka service.

Climate

Spring and fall are the best seasons to visit Japan.
The symposium will take place in November, as Osaka slowly transitions to tree colors and the quaint city welcomes the crisp air of fall.
The temperature ranges between 13℃ and 17℃ (56-63℉).

Currency Exchange

Only Japanese yen (JPY) is accepted at regular stores and restaurants. Certain foreign currencies may be accepted at a limited number of hotels, restaurants and souvenir shops. You can exchange your currency to yen at foreign exchange banks and other authorized money exchangers on presentation of your passport.

Traveler's Checks and Credit Cards

Traveler's checks are accepted only by leading banks and major hotels in principal cities, and the use of traveler's checks in Japan is not as popular as in some other countries. VISA, MasterCard, Diners Club, and American Express are widely accepted at hotels, department stores, shops, restaurants and nightclubs.

Tipping

In general, tips are not necessary, even at hotels and restaurants in Japan.

Electricity

Please note that the Japanese electrical current is 100V AC, a voltage that is pretty much unique in the world. However, the country is split in half when it comes to cycles. Osaka and the western part of Japan are on 60 Hz, while Tokyo and the eastern part of the country are on 50 Hz. Plugs are identical to the two-pin type in North America. Appliances with three-pin plugs will require an adapter.

Shopping

Shops and other sales outlets in Japan are generally open on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays as well as weekdays from 10:00 to 20:00. Department stores, however, are closed on one weekday, differing by stores, and certain specialty shops may not open on Sundays and national holidays.
