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.
Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Mount Koyasan (in Koya-cho), Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more) and Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, identify plant and animal life at Nara Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kofuku-ji Temple.

To see maps, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Osaka trip 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, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 27°C, while at night they dip to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
