As Japan’s third largest city, Osaka is the heart of the Kansai region and the birthplace of the Takarazuka Revue, instant noodles, karaoke and “kaiten-zushi” (conveyor belt sushi). Constantly beaming with energy, the vibrant streets offer Kansai staples such as “takoyaki” (fried dough balls with octopus) and “okonomiyaki” (savory Japanese pancakes) every few meters. Not only serving as the “nation’s kitchen,” one can experience Osaka’s rich history and cultural significance through famous landmarks such as the Osaka Castle and The Tower of the Sun, and wander through the captivating Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Wrap up a long day of sightseeing with a sunset over the city from the observation deck of Abeno Harukas, and of course don’t forget to snap a pic with the Glico billboard. Read the full itinerary on The Japan Times online. (Chisato Tanaka and Alyssa I. Smith photos)
