About Osaka City

Osaka city needs no introductions. As a major tourist hub in Japan, Osaka rivals Tokyo in terms of attractions and food.

Visitors will be spoilt for choice with Universal Studios Osaka, Osaka Aquarium, and Osaka Castle all vying for their attention. And that is only the tip of the iceberg for an Osaka experience. Shopaholics are in for a treat as Namba’s Shinsaibashi and Dotonburi shopping districts are filled with endless boutiques.

However, Osaka is best known as a gastronomic heaven. Hailed as the food capital of Japan (some say even the world), Osaka serves up delicious takoyaki (octopus in fried batter), okonomiyaki (pan-fried batter cake), and more. There simply is no excuse to go hungry in Osaka.

As with many cities, Osaka’s Umeda Sky Building offers a stunning view from the top – even more so at night when the entire city lights up.
