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 Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kyoto (Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, & more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ginkakuji Temple, stroll around Nara Park, and explore the historical opulence of Himeji Castle.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka journey planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 13°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
