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.
Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Kids Plaza Osaka make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Ukyo (Toei Kyoto Studio Park & Ryoanji Temple), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle). And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, make a trip to Arashiyama, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our 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. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
