Why Visit Osaka, Japan

With its lively urban atmosphere, delicious street food, and numerous dazzling neon billboards, colorful Osaka is the third-largest city in the country and an ideal destination to enrich your Japan itinerary.

During your Osaka travel, drop by the busiest and oldest shopping area in the city, Dotonbori Street. This large-scale modern downtown is filled with countless cafes and restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Apart from the great local Japanese cuisine, the street surprises its guests with impressive sign boards that look like giant art installations (some of them even move!).

One more of the iconic Osaka landmarks is the Umeda Sky Building. Two towers of the high-rise building are connected with the open-air Floating Garden Observatory where the city of Osaka (and even Awaji Island!) can be viewed from a height of 170 meters (557 feet).

Travelers come to Osaka not only to explore rich Japanese culture and try local delicacies but also to have some fun as here is one of the six Universal Studios situated. The outstanding amusement park consists of various themed sections such as Jurassic Park and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Each section offers numerous fascinating activities and certainly won’t leave anyone indifferent.

All of the mentioned above is far from everything that this vibrant city has to offer. With its bright culture and unique extraordinary vibe, Osaka is a perfect and unforgettable addition to any Japan trip!
