We found 12 things to do in Osaka! Osaka is the third largest city in Japan and capital of the Prefecture of the same name, as well as among the three most important cities in the country, along with Tokyo and Kyoto. Where Tokyo and Kyoto are binary opposites, with the former being a hyper-modern capital and the latter a quiet, traditionalist heritage city, Osaka is a down-to-earth city that manages to strike a good balance between the old and the new.

About Osaka
Osaka is the third largest city in Japan and capital of the Prefecture of the same name, as well as among the three most important cities in the country, along with Tokyo and Kyoto. Where Tokyo and Kyoto are binary opposites, with the former being a hyper-modern capital and the latter a quiet, traditionalist heritage city, Osaka is a down-to-earth city that manages to strike a good balance between the old and the new. It's also known for its bay area and amusement parks, among which is Universal Studios Japan, and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, the second-largest aquarium tank in the world. Travel to Osaka in 2015 with our tours and activities and find the best ways to explore this great city.

Go on an Osaka Full Day Tour with Osaka Castle and Floating Garden Observatory and explore some of the best sights and destinations in the city. Start at the Aerial Garden Observatory, where a scenic view of the cityscape awaits. From there, go to Osaka Castle, built in 1583 to serve as the seat of the capital of Japan, before Edo, now Tokyo, was designated the Japanese capital. Walk through this castle, whose grounds and structure have recently been renovated, and marvel at the well-preserved history of one of the most famous landmarks in the country. Go on to a nearby river boat dock and board the Aqua Liner to cruise around Nakanoshima for one hour, getting views of the Castle, Twin Towers, City Hall on Nakanoshima Isle, and more.

Make a splash with an Osaka Bay Area Half Day Tour as you visit the popular Osaka Port area. Spend more than two hours at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, where whale sharks among tens of thousands of other creatures can be seen, hailing from such diverse origins as the Aleutian Islands and the Gulf of Panama. After marveling at the aquatic life within this massive aquarium, proceed on a cruise along Osaka Bay atop the Santa Maria, a double-sized replica of Christopher Columbus's legendary flagship.

Expand your touring horizons beyond the Osaka city limits and go on a Kyoto afternoon tour, or a Hiroshima and Miyajima day tour.
