Enjoy Osaka on a Budget

One of the world’s largest metropolitan cities, Osaka is a bustling network of towering buildings and cutting-edge technology offset by a vibrant culture rich in history and tradition. Castles and temples stand side by side with modern installation art and giant Ferris wheels, while leafy, green parks are dispersed among lofty skyscrapers. An eclectic city jam-packed with exciting things to do makes Osaka the perfect port of call for travelers looking for more bang for their buck!

Things to see in Osaka

The 16th-century Osaka Castle is one of the city’s most iconic sites—ringed by a scenic moat, the castle houses a fascinating museum in its 8-story interior. Outside, the lush grounds of the sprawling Osaka Castle Park provide the perfect place for a spot of hanami (flower-viewing) when the sakura (cherry) blossoms bloom, while sports facilities and a charming duck pond offer a moment’s respite from the hustle and bustle of city life—and you might even happen upon some musical entertainment from local buskers! Go back even further in time with a visit to Shitennoji Temple, the first Buddhist temple in Japan dating back to the year 593. Visit the majestic residents at the turtle sanctuary here, while a night-time visit to the Hozen Temple, illuminated by lanterns, is not to be missed. Then head to the Shinsekai district to enjoy nomi-houdai (all-you-can-eat) offers on traditional Japanese food—and tabe-houdai (all-you-can-drink) offers, too!
