Overview of Osaka

“Eat until you drop.”

Osaka is Japan’s 3rd largest city and is considered to be Japan’s merchant capital.

The attractions are widely diverse from historical sites like the Sumiyoshi-taisha Shrine which dates back to 211 and the centuries old Shitennoji Temple to modern sites like Universal Studios Japan and Abeno Harukas, Japan’s tallest skyscraper.
