Driving Directions to
Osaka is the third largest city in Japan and the metropolis of the Kansai region. Osaka is a port city and historically the commercial capital of Japan. The traditional greeting among the townspeople of this friendly, unpretentious "work hard, party hard" town is mohkare Makka or "do you make money?" Visitors will appreciate Osaka's friendlier ethics compared to Tokyo's own business environment. Osaka has long been identified by kuidaore ("ruinous food") as opposed to Kyoto kidaore ("ruinous dressing"), and there are several Osaka-born dishes to try, starting with the hearty okonomiyaki pancake if you mean to say you've seen Osaka. Osaka's main centers are oriented north-south, making it easy to explore and display different atmospheres, from the dazzling north to the more earthy south. The other capitals of the Kansai region: Kyoto, Nara and Kobe are less than an hour from Osaka by train. Things to see and do in Osaka
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Kansai area, with Osaka at its center, produced 5% of world GDP. Those exciting days may have ended when the Kansai and Osaka area were overtaken by megacities like Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Tianjin in China, but Osaka and the inner Kansai region remain a powerhouse in the Japanese economy.
Osaka has been a major port and trading city in Japan since the early Edo period and earlier since Toyotomi Hideyoshi founded Osaka Castle in 1596. Osaka delivered products such as rice, sake, pottery and jewelry from Kyoto to the capital in Edo ( Tokyo).Sea.
Like Tokyo, Osaka is divided into different areas, each with its own distinctive character: Nakanoshima is Osaka's cultural and administrative center on an island in the Yodogawa River, Den Den Town (an electronics shopping district in Daikokucho and the equivalent of Osaka to Akihabara in Tokyo), Umeda, Shinsaibashi and Namba are the places for shopping and nightlife.
New developments near the Osaka port on the Tempozan coast, including the Osaka Aquarium and the nearby Universal Studios (USJ) are the new reasons to visit the city. The southern part of the city around Tennoji, which includes the historic Shitennoji Temple, Shinsekai (New World) and the Osaka Zoo has its own charm.
Spa World near Dobutsuenmae Station (Osaka Zoo) in Tennoji district is a super onsen with a capacity of 5,000 bathers who can explore bathing areas inspired by Turkey, India, Rome, China and other countries. Tsuruhashi is the Korean city of Osaka with a unique atmosphere and a great opportunity to try Korean food.
Osaka is divided into Kita (north) and Minami (south). Kita is the city's main business district, located around JR Osaka and Umeda stations, while Minami is the Namba and Shinsaibashi-centered shopping and entertainment district, with the more earthy Dotombori roughly in the middle of the two locations. Dojimagawa and Tosaborigawa are the two rivers that divide Kita and Minami, and between the two is the Nakanoshima administrative region. Osaka Castle (near Kyobashi Station) is one of Osaka's top attractions, and the great Osaka Koen (Osaka Castle Park) hosts bands and other cultural and musical events on the premises on weekends.
The Umeda Sky Building is a 173 meter tall building made up of two separate skyscrapers connected at the top, reminiscent of the Grand Arch of La Defense, Paris. It was completed in 1993 and designed by architect Hiroshi Hara, probably best known for the new Kyoto train station. Excellent museums in Osaka include the Osaka City
