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.
For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Kyoto Station Building. Visiting Nara Park and Kyoto Isshu Trail, Higahiyama Fuahimi Inari Course will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine & Todai-ji Temple), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine & Daizen-ji Temple). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, make a trip to Gion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ginkaku-ji Temple, and go for a walk through Arashiyama.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
