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.
Nara Park and Gion are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Higashinada (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum & Kobe Fashion Museum), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Dotonbori, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, take an in-depth tour of Peace Osaka, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Osaka are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
