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.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Himeji Castle will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at Nara Park and Four-M. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Nishiki Market, Gion, & more), Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). There's much more to do: shop like a local with Dotonbori, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kongobu-ji Temple, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, and wander the streets of Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 13°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
