Ah, Osaka. Honestly one of my favourite cities in Japan! Osaka has the nickname of “tenka no daidokoro” - which means “nation's kitchen” or more worldly renowned as “The Kitchen of Japan”. Osaka is also renowned as the kitchen of the world by some people. If you're a foodie, you're in the right place!
Osaka is not just about food, however. In comparison, it is similar to Tokyo but has a much more of a local, friendly atmosphere. It is considered the second capital of Japan, due to its size, culture and population. It’s also very close to Kyoto and Kobe.
Osaka has a fantastic atmosphere and in my opinion, is one of the greatest cities in Japan!
Depending on where you are coming from, to get to Osaka you may be using JR lines (from areas in Kansai and further afield). It's wise to buy a Japan Rail Pass as it will save you money, hassle, and it helps to support this website! Thank you! Click on the ads on this page to buy one, or click here.
Explore below for the best things to do in Osaka, from food to fun... Happy travels!

Tokyo might as well be the capital of Asia. On of the busiest cities in the world with so much energy, bright lights and buzz, it can be both awesome but intimidating. Take my hand, let me guide you through Tokyo for a weekend!
