Osaka Introduction

From Umeda’s massive department stores to Dotonbori’s colorful nightlife and glowing signboards, there’s much ground to cover in Japan’s second most populated city. Located in the Kansai region on Honshu Island, Osaka is an urban jungle thick with skyscrapers, and there are more than enough shopping malls, historic shrines, and amusement parks to keep a tourist happy. If there’s one thing you shouldn’t forget to pack, it’s your appetite, because with over 100 Michelin-starred restaurants, Osaka offers a gastronomic experience like no other. Budget-conscious foodies need not worry, because you can buy scrumptious local specialties from street vendors and in the basements of departments stores.

Hotels in Osaka

You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodations in Osaka, which range from capsule pods to modern apartments to 5-star suites. If you’re looking for the full Japanese experience, you can stay in a ryokan – a traditional Japanese inn with rooms that have tatami flooring and sliding doors. Ryokans have futon beds and communal bathing facilities. Many hostels, inns, and hotels also offer Japanese-style rooms with futon bedding. As for Western-style lodging, rooms in cheap to mid-range hotels are generally on the small side, while luxury hotels have more spacious rooms than usual. These hotels often have indoor pools, spas, and 24-hour health clubs. Note that some accommodations in Osaka are adults-only.

Where to stay

Osaka is basically divided into 2 sections, and both offer good lodging. The southern portion is called Minami, and consists of the Namba shopping district and Tennoji, a transport hub. This area is more touristy yet also more authentic if you want a glimpse of Osaka life. You’ll find the full gamut of lodging options here, from ryokans to upscale hotels. The northern half, called Kita, consists of the Umeda district. There are skyscrapers everywhere, as well as vast department stores. Kita has more hotels than Minami, including big-name luxury hotels catering to sophisticated travelers and business executives, and even the low-cost lodging is slightly more expensive than accommodations in Minami.

Things to see

There’s much to see and experience in Osaka, whether you’re visiting for culture, nightlife, or family-friendly entertainment. Osaka Castle, dating from 1583, is among Japan’s most celebrated landmarks and a must-see for first-time visitors. Built by a prince in 593, Shitennoji Temple is the country’s oldest Buddhist temple. Families, especially those with young kids, shouldn’t miss a trip to Universal Studios Japan, a world-class theme park that attracts over 10 million visitors a year. Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, one of the world’s largest public aquariums, and the Tempozan Ferris Wheel are also nearby. For shopping, head for Shinsaibashi district and the nearby Amerikamura retail hub, then go to Dotonbori for street food and nightlife.

How to get to Osaka

From Kansai International Airport, you can catch a train or a shuttle bus to get to central Osaka. The journey takes about an hour. If you’re flying in from elsewhere in Japan, it’s more convenient to arrive at Osaka (Itami) International Airport, which only handles domestic flights, as it’s closer to the city center. Osaka’s extensive public transport network includes a busy subway system and several railway lines that connect with other major cities in the country. Shin-Osaka Station is the western terminus of the Shinkansen bullet train line from Tokyo, which is the fastest and most hassle-free way to reach the Japanese capital. This high-speed line also passes Kyoto and Nagoya. Another way to experience Osaka is to take a cruise or a water bus.
