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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Sanjusangendo Temple, & more). And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
