Osaka
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 Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Matsue Swimming Beach (in Akashi), Kyoto (Gion & Kinkaku-ji) and Nakagyo (Nishiki Market Shopping District & Nijo Castle). There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Minami (Namba), contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle.

To find where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, use the Osaka trip maker tool .

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 in Osaka, expect temperatures between 13°C during the day and 4°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
