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. With Kyoto not far away, the city of Osaka is home to many shrines and landmarks including the 16th century Osaka Castle. Upon first glance, Osaka appears to be densely packed with skyscrapers, however, look beyond and discover buzzing neighbourhoods – 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.
