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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more) and Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Kofuku-ji Temple). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, admire the striking features of Shin Umeda City, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and take in panoramic vistas at Kuchu Teien Observatory.

To see where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip itinerary planning site .

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 4th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
