I can see the excitement all over your face! You are visiting Osaka soon and are looking for things to do while there. No need to worry Sarah is here! In 2016 I visited Osaka as well as Kyoto and Toyko.
Osaka is a large port city and commercial center on the Japanese island of Honshu. I LOVED Osaka because it was so chill but still had a city vibe. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Osaka check out Guesthouse Sun HERE.
In no particular order here are the top three things I would recommend:
1. Go to Dotonbori
When researching on things to do in Osaka, Dotonbori will surely come up. I went to Dotonburi during the day and at night and preferred it at night, BUT I prefer going out at night and had a friend with me. Either time of the day is great!
2. Visit Osaka Castle Park
It is a really beautiful historical place. I did not get pictures of everything but it has a lovely places to sit and walk as well as the actual castle.
3. Visit Universal Studio Japan
I am from London and we don’t have a Universal Studios so I was super excited to go! It was a fun day and would recommend it especially for those going with children.
I hope you have left inspired!
