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.
For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. Get outdoors at Nara Park and Mt. Koya. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Sanjusangendo Temple, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kyoto (Zuisen-ji Temple, Ryoanji Temple, & more). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market Shopping District, see the interesting displays at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, and find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
