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.
Take a break from the city and head to Mount Koyasan and Tannowa Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Osaka Museum of Housing and Living. Venture out of the city with trips to Cup Noodle Mueseum (in Ikeda), Kobe (Kobe Harborland, Arima Onsen, & more) and Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kyoto National Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Dotonbori, identify plant and animal life at Mitarai Valley, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, and see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics.

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 19°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
