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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama), Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, wander the streets of Dotonbori, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji.

To find other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Osaka day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
