Osaka Holidays

Osaka is a down-to-earth, relaxed city in comparison to its big sister Tokyo. Eat and drink your way through this vibrant city, home to amazing food and people. Osaka holidays invite you to step away from the usual tourist attractions and blend in with its laid-back lifestyle. 

Osaka has a rich and complex history, which is told at the city’s many museums. Anyone with an appreciation for architecture will enjoy a visit to the Umeda Sky Building, named one of the top 20 buildings in the world, offering panoramic views of the city from its observation deck. Explore the landscaped grounds of Osaka Castle and Sumiyoshi shrine before losing yourself in Osaka's bustling street markets and winding alleys. Crammed full of weird and wonderful shops and restaurants, explore the delicacies and delights of old and traditional Japan along with its many quirky and futuristic clubs and bars.

The nightlife capital of Japan

This city is incredibly famous for its cuisine, so when night falls, explore the delicious street food on offer under the dim light of the lanterns that cast an elegant glow upon Osaka’s flag-stoned streets. After dinner, why not take a nostalgic trip to a retro video games bar and go back in time with a game of Sonic the Hedgehog? Or venture to Osaka’s very own America town, a great people-watching spot with an amusing replica of the Statue Of Liberty. Many of the brightly-lit entertainment districts in Osaka buzz with excitement twenty-four hours a day. One thing’s for sure, you will never be bored during your Osaka holiday.
