Osaka

Discover the charm of easy-going Osaka, Japan’s third largest city, also considered the stomach of Japan.

Embracing the status of a food-loving city, Osaka boasts an array of food stalls and restaurants, many Michelin star rated.

The vibrant metropolis is split with a lovely river and numerous canals cutting through the centre, awash with vivid colours and bright shopfronts that abound along the concrete buildings.

Although not as beautiful as nearby Kyoto, the city still boasts many important shrines and landmarks including the 16th century Osaka Castle.

Upon first glance, the city appears to be densely packed with skyscrapers and a network of railway lines, however look beyond and discover buzzing neighbourhoods.

The likes of Shinsaibashi, Dotonbori, Amerika-mura and Namba, are almost exclusively shopping, eating and entertainment districts, which come to life at night.

Another area worth exploring is Tennoii, where you’ll find Shitennoji, the city’s most important temple.
