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 Kyoto (Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nakagyo (Nijo Castle & Nishiki Market Shopping District). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and go for a walk through Himeji Castle.

For ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka online day 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 December in Osaka, expect temperatures between 13°C during the day and 4°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
