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.
Visiting Nara Park and Mt. Kurama will get you outdoors. Visit Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Arashiyama Syoryuen, Togetsukyo Bridge, & more), Tanizeno Tsuribashi (in Totsukawa-mura) and Nara (Heijokyu Ruins, Naramachi Koshino Ie, & more). Pack the 26th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Hirakata Park. There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Koyasan, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
