Osaka is Japan's third largest city and the central metropolis of the Kansai region. Though very much an industrial Japanese city, Osaka still has plenty to offer travellers in the way of historic sites, modern marvels and delicious cuisine.

The city's most famous attraction is the Osaka Castle, also known as Osaka-jō, dating back to 1583. All together the castle contains thirteen structures with the main castle building spanning five stories above and three stories below ground. The castle is open to the public and is particularly popular during festivals such as Hanami which takes place during cherry blossom season.

Another of Osaka's notable landmarks is Kaiyukan, the city's aquarium. With 27 tanks and 16 main exhibits, the Osaka Aquarium is one of the largest in the world. Amongst the aquarium's biggest draw cards are sea otters, king penguins, giant spider crabs and a whale shark.

While Osaka has plenty to see, you'll also want to take some time to sit down and enjoy the flavours of this Japanese city. Osaka's food culture is so strong that the city is commonly regarded as the culinary capital of Japan. Most of Osaka's restaurants are concentrated in the main entertainment districts, and range in cuisine from simple American style coffee shops to tradition food and multicultural cuisine. Highlight local dishes to try in Osaka include the popular Takoyaki (a small octopus dumpling), the hot pot dish Tecchiri and the popular meat dish of Shabu Shabu which originates from Osaka.
