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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nara Park and Mt. Koya. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Osaka Castle and Kinkaku-ji. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Gion (in Kyoto), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, look for gifts at Ichimonji Chuki, and get a taste of the local shopping with Minami (Namba).

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
