Flights to Osaka

Historically, Osaka was the capital of Japan. Today that title belongs to Tokyo, but Osaka remains the third largest Japanese city. When you’re not marveling at the cherry blossoms surrounding Osaka Castle or wandering the gardens of the centuries-old Sumiyoshi taisha, it’s easy to lose yourself in more modern pursuits, from shopping in Shinsaibashi to clubbing in Namba.

And that’s not forgetting Dotonbori, the heart of Osaka, which has enough flashing neon signs to rival Times Square or Piccadilly Circus.

Yet perhaps more than any other city in Japan, Osaka is a destination for food lovers. It’s called the kitchen of the nation; the local attitude to dining is summed up by the concept of kuidaore, which means "to eat oneself bankrupt."

Needless to say, people in Osaka appreciate a good meal, and you’ll be spoiled for choice. Hole-in-the-wall street joints in particular are an essential part of the Osaka experience. You shouldn’t leave without trying the takoyaki (balls of flour filled with octopus) or okonomiyaki (a savory pancake filled with veggies and meat) from one of the many street stalls.

Even more warm and inviting than its restaurants, though, are Osaka’s people. The city’s residents are famously hospitable; even with a population of nearly 3 million, Osaka maintains the air of a friendly, small-town community. You’ll find the locals are happy to chat or offer travel tips.

What to do in Osaka

Take the children to Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan

Of all the family-friendly attractions in Osaka, this aquarium is one of the most popular. Covering eight floors, it has dolphins, seals, penguins, and even whale sharks. You can also check out the Tempozan Ferris Wheel nearby, which lights up in a different color depending on the weather forecast for the next day.

Visit Osaka Castle

Even though this building is actually a reconstruction of the 16th-century castle, it’s still a stunning piece of Japanese architecture. You can learn about the city’s history, take a ride in the Hep Five Ferris Wheel, or picnic in Osaka Castle Park (a popular option during the cherry blossom season).

See Sumiyoshi taisha shrine

A visit to this ancient shrine will leave you with a true sense of Japanese history. Sumiyoshi taisha dates back to the year 211, making it one of the oldest shrines in Japan. It is believed the kami (Shinto gods) in the shrine protect travelers, sailors, and fishermen.

Where to eat in Osaka

Tenshige (Japanese)

Don’t be fooled by the size of this tiny tempura joint; Tenshige is actually a Michelin-starred restaurant. There’s room for about a dozen diners, so the atmosphere is friendly and intimate, and you can see the chef preparing your meal in the open kitchen. The tempura is fantastic.

Zuboraya (Japanese)

Every adventurous foodie’s bucket list should include fugu, or puffer fish. It was made famous by an episode of The Simpsons and can be deadly if prepared incorrectly. Visit the Dotonbori branch of Zuboraya to splurge on some of the best fugu sashimi in the city. This is a real delicacy.

Hajime (French-Japanese fusion)

This seriously impressive restaurant made Michelin history when it was awarded three stars within a year and a half of its opening. Helmed by chef and owner Hajime Yoneda, the menu is French but the taste is Japanese. Perfect for a special occasion.
