Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Kyoto (Arashiyama, Gion, & more). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.

For other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. December in Osaka sees daily highs of 13°C and lows of 4°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
