Osaka
Osaka is the center of Japan’s Western region, known for being a hub of gourmet cooking, the nation’s water capital and the “Vice President” of Japan’s cities. A symbol of the metropolis, Osaka Castle is a must-see attraction that is representative of the continuous historical changes in the city. Universal Studios is another destination well worth a visit, with its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minions and Sesame Street attractions all waiting for a fun-filled family visit. If you’ve got a small child in tow, fun awaits at the mysterious underwater world at Osaka Aquarium, or the nearby Tempozan Ferris Wheel from the top of which you can get a beautiful view of Osaka Bay. In terms of shopping, Osaka Umeda District in the north, Namba in the south, along with Shinsaibashi and Midosuji offer endless stores and malls to discover. Be sure to visit a couple times in case you miss something your first time in Osaka.
