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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Nara (Nara Park & Todai-ji Temple), Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more) and Himeji Castle (in Himeji). The adventure continues: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle, see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Koya.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, read Osaka online travel route builder.

In December in Osaka, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
