Experiencing Osaka

By Lydia, October 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Tokyo gets all the attention for its big city feel and Kyoto for its ancient culture, but the city of Osaka shouldn’t be overlooked when planning your Japan itinerary. Known for its laid-back attitude and tasty cuisine, what the city lacks in history and charm it makes up for in the dining scene alone. The best time to experience Osaka is at night when the neon lights come on and the sounds of pachinko (Japanese pinball) machines fill the streets. Consequently, making Osaka your home base allows for quick day trips to Kyoto, Kobe and Hiroshima with plenty of time to make it back for dinner and a night on the town.
