E26***17Food lover paradise! The Daimutsu department store foodhall at basement 2 is incredible! I cannot find a reason why not to love Osaka.
Osaka Castle

Historical Architecture
E26***17Lovely walk from the train station to the castle. Take about 15-20min from station exit to the castle main gate. Entry was ¥600 per adult ticket. Suggest to take the lift from ground floor up to the top first then work your way down each other floor with some osaka history.
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan
4.7/5

Aquarium
谌默默I like aquarium, a total of 4 floors, the middle tank from the ground floor to the 4th floor, there are many different species of marine life, it feels like a part of the sea world has been restored, and I can see the staff feeding very pleasantly surprised to see the emperor penguin, super cute, It's just a little sad to see so many emperor penguins in such a small space
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
4.7/5

DanaMY POTTERHEAD HEART WAS FULL WHEN I FINALLY VISITED THIS DREAMLAND! ♥️ I've been dreaming of going to USJ to finally experience my Harry Potter dream, and last March 2019, it finally happened! I finally was there. I have a lot to say! First, the Castle was magnificent. Well, not just the castle but, everything was an exact copy of all the places in the movies. Second, I got my wand from Ollivander's exactly as how Harry got his! Third, I bought ny Ravenclaw Scarf! I drank Butterbeer, and by the way, it's for ¥1000. Plus ¥500 if you want to buy the plastic cup. I ate at the Three Broomsticks. I stayed half of the day at Hogsmeade. The castle ride was an absolute fun! I did it twice! Lastly, it is a must to see the Castle Illumination at night. You should never miss it!

Summer Kansai Fireworks Festival is something you cannot miss in your summer vacation in Japan. Wearing a yukata and holding moon-shaped fans to attend the fireworks festival has become a part of Japan's poetic summer scenery. We have to mention Kansai when talking about fireworks festivals. Each place has its own characteristics. It is a really unique experience when appreciating the fireworks exploding in the sky. Have you decided where to go watch fireworks in Japan this summer?

Osaka Travel Tips

About Osaka

Osaka is the center of Japan’s Western region, known for being a hub of gourmet cooking, the nation’s water capital and the “Vice President” of Japan’s cities. A symbol of the metropolis, Osaka Castle is a must-see attraction that is representative of the continuous historical changes in the city. Universal Studios is another destination well worth a visit, with its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minions and Sesame Street attractions all waiting for a fun-filled family visit. If you’ve got a small child in tow, fun awaits at the mysterious underwater world at Osaka Aquarium, or the nearby Tempozan Ferris Wheel from the top of which you can get a beautiful view of Osaka Bay. In terms of shopping, Osaka Umeda District in the north, Namba in the south, along with Shinsaibashi and Midosuji offer endless stores and malls to discover. Be sure to visit a couple times in case you miss something your first time in Osaka.
