Japan Travels,  Osaka

Our weekend in OSAKA 大阪 

From the 17th to the 20th of March we visited Osaka, one of the biggest cities in Japan that is famous for its delicious street food. It’s a short shinkansen (bullet train) ride of 2 and a half hours from Tokyo. 

We stayed in an AirBNB in the Namba area which was conveniently located, not too far away from the interesting spots!

What to see:

  • The Osaka castle, a beautiful reconstruction of the original one that got destroyed in WWII. 
  • Dotonbori, the central area full of restaurants, shops and people.
  • AMERIKAMURA, Osaka’s version of Harajuku.
  • Universal Studios, if you can/want to afford the money and time it costs. ? I will soon write about it on a separate entry.

What to eat:

  • Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki. Delicious and inexpensive fried food. Takoyaki are octopus croquettes and okonomiyaki are savory cabbage pancakes made with many other ingredients that you can choose. 
  • Bunnytokyo recommends: Floresta doughnuts AKA the cutest doughnuts you will ever have – in the shape of adorable and colorful animals.

We met some friends, ate a lot and had enjoyed wandering around Osaka. Not the prettiest town in Japan but definitely a great weekend getaway!

    Have you ever been in Osaka? ✨
