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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more), Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Mt. Wakakusa, &more) and Kobe (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, &more). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle, and take in the views from Oe Bridge.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Osaka trip planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
