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.
For shopping fun, head to Minami (Namba) or Midosuji Street. Step off the beaten path and head to Eikando Zenrinji Temple and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Koya-cho (Koyasan Okunoin & Koyasan Danjo Garan), Mii-dera Temple (Onjo-ji Temple) (in Otsu) and Arima Onsen (in Kita). There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Universal City Walk Osaka, take a stroll through Pontocho, get a taste of the local shopping with Hankyu Umeda Main Store, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tenryuji Temple.

To find where to stay, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka attractions planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In October in Osaka, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 17°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
