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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Monkey Park Iwatayama. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe), Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, & more) and Mount Koyasan (in Koya-cho). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, wander the streets of Dotonbori, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and look for all kinds of wild species at Nara Park.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November in Osaka, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
