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've added Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, Legoland Discovery Center Osaka, Tonbori River Cruise, and other attractions to your itinerary. Keep things going the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kofuku-ji Temple, identify plant and animal life at Nara Park, appreciate the history behind Todai-ji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kasuga Grand Shrine, then make a trip to Higashimuki Shopping Street, and finally take a stroll through Dotonbori.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Osaka is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Osaka due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Kuala Lumpur in November, with highs in Osaka at 20°C and lows at 10°C. You'll have a few hours on the 25th (Mon) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.
