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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Hankyu Umeda Honten and Namba Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street. Step off the beaten path and head to Midosuji Street and Mint Museum. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Akame Shijuhachi Waterfall (in Nabari), Kishiwada CanCan Bayside Mall (in Kishiwada) and Koya-cho (Kongobu-ji Temple, Koyasan Okunoin, &more). Next up on the itinerary: have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, see the interesting displays at Kids Plaza Osaka, browse the different shops at Namba Walk, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Maya.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
