Loud, busy, and full of fun activities anyone will enjoy, Osaka is the third-largest city in Japan, with a population of roughly 2.6 million. Foodies will love the city whose unofficial nickname translates to 'the city that loves to eat.
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. People in Osaka are considered to be brasher than much of the rest of Japan, but don't let that stop you from visiting.
Although the winter months do not see extreme temperatures or snowfall, Osaka does have four distinct seasons. The offseasons from March to May and September to November are great times to visit as the weather is temperate and the crowds are minimal.
