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.
Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Minami (Namba). Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Fushimi Inari Taisha, Sanjusangendo Temple, & more) and Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Tōdai-ji). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Shinsaibashi, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and meet the residents at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka trip builder.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
