① Osaka Castle
The most beautiful and popular castle in Osaka. You can feel the history of Osaka in just one place because there are many national important cultural properties other than the castle itself. In spring, you can see beautiful cherry blossoms in the park near here.
② Splashing-in Bus Tour
This is the most surprising bus tour you will ever experience! It seems like you are on a usual bus tour at first, but at the end of the tour, the bus splashes into the river. You can enjoy the pleasing sights of Osaka from a different perspective, above the water.
③ Shin-Sekai (The New World)
We call this small district a New world because it really makes you feel you are in a different part of the world or even time-traveling! The decorative name boards, delicious deep-fried pork, and interesting figurines such as flying blowfish, will amaze you. The Tsutenkaku (Osaka tower) is one of the famous landmarks of Osaka that you should check out!
④ Doguyasuji (Utensil shopping arcade)
This is a shopping arcade where you can buy Japanese potteries, dishes, clothes (some kimonos too) at cheap price. They also sell utensils for cooking Japanese meals, so if you would like to make Japanese foods back home this is the place to visit. Great chance to buy souvenirs as well.
This is a shopping and gourmet street where you can find delicious Osaka-soul-foods such as okonomiyaki (lettuce pancake), takoyaki (octopus balls), and dishes with crabs. There is a museum for foods in Osaka, and you can also experience making food-samples!
