There are plenty of reasons to fall in love with Osaka, but the food is undoubtedly one of its major drawcards. Osaka is one of Japan’s most delicious cities attracting foodies from all around the world with the promise of culinary delights including Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki.
The great thing about Osaka is that you can find some delicious street eats and inexpensive accommodation alongside more luxurious lodgings and elevated dining experiences. You can tailor your Osaka experience depending on budget.
Good news! Osaka is beautiful at any time of the year, however spring is a popular choice for visitors. For a bloomin’ beautiful backdrop, plan your trip for late March and early April and you’ll catch the majestic cherry blossoms in all their glory.
From exploring man-made islands and museums to eating your way around the many Izakaya bars and even donning a onesie for a spot of Mario-inspired go-karting, there’s plenty to see and do in Osaka. If you’re planning on doing some sightseeing, Osaka Castle and Shitennoji Temple are a must!
It depends, how much eating and drinking can you do in a week? If you’re after just the highlights reel, you’ll need at least a couple of days here. If you’re after the true Osaka experience, you’ll want to linger a little longer.
What to pack depends a lot on what time of year you are travelling, so best to do some specific seasonal research before stuffing your suitcase. As a general guide you’ll want cash and credit cards, a SIM card or portable Wi-Fi, electrical adapter, comfortable shoes and your appetite.
