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.
Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nanzen-ji Temple will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Osaka Castle. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kodai-ji Temple, Chion-in Temple, & more), Nara (Nara Park & Nigatsu-do Temple) and Kyoto (Tenryuji Temple, Toji, & more). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hase-dera Temple, get to know the fascinating history of Hozenji Yokocho, and shop like a local with Hankyu Umeda Honten.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
