Osaka

— 4 nights
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.
Osaka is known for historic sites, theme parks, and parks. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, take a stroll through Dotombori District, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and admire the striking features of Shin Umeda City.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip planner.

Tokyo to Osaka is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) to allow enough time to fly back home.
