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've added Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Shin-sekai market, Arima Onsen, and other attractions to your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Waterfall of Mino (in Mino), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Kyutei Omuro (in Ukyo). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Himeji Castle, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip maker .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to drive to Mino.
