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: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, go for a walk through Arashiyama, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
