Osaka itself isn't heavy on attractions. After you have gone to the main sights, it's mostly just wandering around enjoying the city's happening atmosphere and some good meals.

If you are up for day trips or overnight trips, you can check out Koyasan, Arima onsen, Shirahama, Kinosaki onsen. Kobe is a nice day trip as well although it doesn't have a great deal to see.

In Osaka, how about the Oriental Ceramics Museum and the Liberty Osaka human rights museum?

In Kobe, the Disaster Reduction (earthquake) museum is excellent.

The mint is worth a look.

Have you been down to Shinsekai - the New World area? Or to Ebisu-bashi to see the Glico Man? Or to Dotombori? These are all great areas if you like a lively streetscape with lots of flashing lights, colours, animated giant crabs etc. and some great food.
