Visiting Osaka from Kyoto

By Emma, Australia, February 2013

No reviews, be the first!

Osaka is less than one hour from Kyoto by train and is well worth a day trip or, at the very least, an overnight stay.

Unlike Tokyo or Kyoto, however, Japan’s third largest city is best approached with a mind to explore and experience rather than to tick off specific sights. Beer and baseball fans will find much in common with the resident Osakans and food lovers can stuff themselves silly on local snacks like takoyaki (octopus dumplings) and okonomiyaki (a savoury pancake, Osaka-style).
