The weather in Osaka is roughly the same as other major cities in Honshu such as Tokyo. However, compared to Tokyo etc., the city center of Osaka is a bit hotter in August. In the center of Osaka, green is small, except for some Osaka Castle and others. The asphalt road is getting hot with strong sunlight, so if you walk all the way there is a risk of exhausting your fitness.
For this reason, I would like to recommend the following three things. First, please devise as much as possible to sightseeing outdoors in a little cool morning or evening.
For example, Namba which is a famous sightseeing spot in Osaka, the neon is beautiful if you go at night. It would be nice to make good use of the night time zone.
Second, as much as possible, let’s increase the time spent in the air conditioned building. For example, how about enjoying facilities such as Kaiyukan(aquarium) or Cupnoodles Museum (museum)?
Thirdly, I recommend that you add relatively cool areas such as Hokkaido to your itinerary, in addition to Osaka. If you go to Hokkaido or the highlands of Honshu, I think that you surely regain your energy with comfortable temperature.
