Old Meets New in Elegant Osaka
Nearly nine million people inhabit elegant Osaka, Japan on the island of Honshu. Modern, sleek skyscrapers mix with incredible reminders of the past, including Osaka Castle. This landmark was built in the 16th Century, but has been renovated several times. Overlooking plum, peach, and cherry blossom trees — as well as a picturesque moat — this eight-story structure is a must-see for visitors.
Osaka also offers amazing Shinto shrines, such as Namba Yasaka, Sumiyoshi-taisha; and temples like the beautiful Shitennoji Temple and Hozen-ji Temple. If you like to shop, this metropolis is a haven to commerce. Shopping opportunities include Grand Front Osaka, Osaka Station City, and Namba Parks.
Modern Osaka attractions include the innovative Floating Garden Observatory, Universal Studios Japan, and Spa World, eight floors of world spa cultures dedicated to helping you relax.
