No wonder, people call this city “the kitchen of the world.”
Stroll through its busy streets and you’ll be surprised by the food options you can try, unique items you’ll purchase, and the very welcoming locals you can have a friendly chat with. Come by night and the streets will be cloaked with neon signs and full-house entertainment. Osaka’s got a long list of other tourist destinations that you can easily access: castles, museums, theme parks, garden—with some you can even reach by walking. This city is where you want to be!
Shop ‘til you drop at the shopping haven, Shinsaibashi
Osaka is not just about the food. For instance, you can head to Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade—a shopaholic’s paradise. From high-end brands like Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton to well-loved high-street shops and independent boutiques, it’s a district where every street corner is a feast for the eyes.
