You only have to walk along the Dotonburi district, with its flashing signs and many eateries, to understand why having a good time here is non-negotiable. Add in its beautiful river, castle and theme parks, and you'll soon learn why people so love the city. Osaka, the culinary city, is good for the mind. Good for the tummy too.

Our tips for Osaka

  • Mind your manners. Etiquette and manners will play an important role during your Osaka tour. The bow is the standard form of greeting in Japan. You do not necessarily need to know the nuances of bowing; but, a simple nod will go a long way!
  • Seek refuge. If you’re not sure where to go you during your Osaka vacation, you can always head to a konbini - a Japanese convenience store. 7-elevens will also do. You can find everything there, including inexpensive, hot food.
  • Pocket Wi-Fi. Picking up a pocket Wi-Fi is a good idea. It can be a hassle trying to get a prepaid SIM card and makes little sense for a short visit. You can find little wireless routers which provide unlimited data and connects to multiple devices at the same time. Smart!

Good to know

You can book your Osaka trip for any time of year. Although the city has some of the warmest temperatures on Honshu Island, it still enjoys a temperate climate. Spring and fall are perhaps the best times to visit. The weather is very pleasant with generally sunny skies. Japan’s famous cherry blossoms are in full bloom during April and May and Osaka is no exception. But, these are also the busiest months and hotels can be full if you have not pre-booked in advance. Winters are not as harsh as Tokyo and you can take advantage of off-season rates.
