Try the takoyaki, deep-fried batter stuffed with octopus, or try the okonomiyaki, Japan's version of the pancake. Okonomiyaki consists of floury batter filled with veggies and topped with meats or seafood and sauces. Of course, you can never go wrong in Japan with sushi or ramen. While eating your way through the city, stop to check out some of the sights. Learn about ancient Japanese history at Osaka Castle, wander through the streets of Shinsekai, go for a stroll at Nakanoshima Park, or hope into any of the neon-sign-bearing shops in Dotonbori.
