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.
Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and SpaWorld make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Kyoto (Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, & more). And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and shop like a local with Dotonbori.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
