What travelers to Osaka are saying
Osaka Travel Guide
Using HotelClub member benefits to secure upgraded accommodation in Japan's third largest city has to be a great deal, so anybody choosing this route to book Osaka hotels is on to a winner. This remarkable metropolis sits at the mouth of the Yodo River and guarantees great value for money. It is divided into 2 main areas; to the north the more business oriented Kita, and to the south Minami, which is essentially the leisure sector.
The spectacular Umeda Sky Building climbs 173 meters to give wonderful views of the city, including the hugely impressive Osaka Aquarium, which houses the second largest tank in the world and is home to all manner of sea creatures, such as the whale shark. Osaka is the location of Japan's interpretation of the Universal Studios, and is equally as popular as the American version. However, there are more sedate experiences to be had, and walks through the forested valley of Mino Koen, unquestionably provide one of them. Its trail concludes at the mightily impressive Minoo Waterfall.
The Tenjin-Matsuri Festival is held annually, over the two day period of July 24th and 25th, with a dramatic firework display bringing proceedings to a close. The purpose of the festival is to honour the principal deity, by parading him through the centre of the city. A jovial atmosphere is conjured up and accompanies the celebrations, with participants taking to the streets in traditional costume.
Your accommodation in Osaka will connect easily with the night life, which is very lively throughout and foreign visitors should look for bars with a gaijin sign, which translates to foreigner, and indicates an establishment which can cater for the non-Japanese. One such place is the Cellar basement bar in the Nishishinsaibashi district, with some marvellous live music played, amongst a friendly crowd.
