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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Gion, Arashiyama, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Higashiyama (Sanjusangendo Temple & Kiyomizu-dera Temple). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka online trip builder .

In December, daytime highs in Osaka are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
