A Few Osaka & Kyoto Questions Kudasai!

Jump to last reply

We will be in Osaka part of the first week in September because my husband has a one day business meeting there. My adult son will be with us. On the day my husband is busy, my son and I will entertain ourselves in Osaka. Then the two or three days we have before we fly from Osaka to Korea to continue our trip we will probably go to Kyoto and maybe Nara. We can stay for free in Osaka using reward points at the new Marriott and it looks like it is only a short train ride to Kyoto, so I am thinking we should just stay in Osaka and make day trips. We are already hopping around quite a bit on this trip due to mixing business with pleasure and I don't really want to change hotels to stay in Kyoto although I know it is more charming than Osaka. Does this make sense?

The second half of my question involves the flight I still need to book from Osaka to Seoul. I know there are two airports in Osaka but when I check flights, Kansai is the only airport that is coming up, nothing from Osaka International? I can fly into either ICN or Gimpo. Is Osaka International now just a domestic airport? I used a few search engines but nothing comes up.

And, if anyone has a suggestion for a music venue that my 27 year old singer-songwriter son would like or a jazz club we could all enjoy let me know! Is there any area where there are street performers? I have read it is frowned upon in Japan. He had a great time on his last trip to Korea because he was able to play his guitar and busked to make some cash!
