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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Dotonbori. Escape the urban bustle at Nara Park and Mt. Koya. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Kyoto (Yodoryokuchi Park, Gion, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kofuku-ji Temple (in Nara). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, examine the collection at Glico Museum, and get your game on at Owl Family Osaka.

If you are flying in from Australia, 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
