As the third-largest city in Japan after Tokyo and Yokohama, Osaka can be counted on to show any traveler a good time. Car rentals in Osaka are a good idea since this city covers over 86 square miles. Whether you're interested in the history and culture, the cuisine of the city (which has been called the world's kitchen), or the famous rice wine made there, you're sure to have a blast on your trip to Osaka.
Osaka International Airport is across the Yodo River from the main part of the city (about a 30 minute drive). Be sure to check out Osaka car rentals so that you can visit numerous attractions around the city. Umeda Sky Building in the upper Kita district is a can't-miss attraction with twin high-rise buildings and a floating garden 173 feet in the air. From here, you can get a 360-degree view of the surrounding city. Families will love exploring the city's zoo and aquarium. When staying in hotels in Osaka during the spring and early summer, visit Osaka Castle Park to take in acres of cherry and plum blossoms in full bloom. The city is full of historic Buddhist and Shinto temples and shrines. The Shitenn?-ji is the oldest Buddhist temple in Japan, dating back to AD 593. Not to be outdone, Sumiyoshi Taisha is one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan, dating back to AD 211. With colorful red roofs and classic Japanese pagoda architecture, this place radiates peace. When you get hungry, head over to Shinsekai, a local food hot spot south of the Minami neighborhood, for Kushikatsu—deep-fried meat and vegetables on a skewer. If upscale dining is what you'd prefer, the Kitashinchi district is a popular spot for tourists.
