Osaka Vacations

Osaka, Japan, is known as the "nation's kitchen," and you'll certainly not go hungry in this city! Whether it's food, history, or culture you crave, there are so many ways to indulge yourself with a package to Osaka. Japan's third largest city is packed with museums, castles, restaurants, parks, and much more.

Major Attractions

Osaka's most famous, and most-visited, attraction is Osaka Castle, a reconstruction of a historic tower castle that now functions as a museum. The surrounding park is a great place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while. One of the city's landmarks in the Umeda Sky Building, twin towers connected at the top by an observatory bridge known as the Floating Garden, where you'll have panoramic city views. Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is one of the largest in the world, holding thousands of fish and other marine animals. Osaka vacations are as much about eating the sea life as seeing it, so head to the Dotonbori area to sample the best sushi in town.

Festivals and Events

The biggest festival of the year, Tenjin Matsuri, takes place on July 24 and 25, and honors the deity of scholarship. The entire city celebrates, with people dressing in traditional costumes and taking part in parades through the streets and along the river in boats. Another huge festival, Gion Matsuri, takes place in July in the nearby city of Kyoto, so have a look into Osaka car rentals if you're visiting at this time of year, and make the 40-mile drive between the cities. While you have the wheels, take a trip to Kobe, 20 miles west of Osaka, to sample some world-famous Kobe beef.
