Guarded from all sides by icy, foreboding mountains, Osaka is an ancient city and Japan’s second largest after the capital Tokyo. Such a far eastern town deserves only the utmost respect when travelling through its streets…some of which are over a thousand years old!
A visit to Osaka is not complete without paying a trip to the old district’s Museum of Housing and Living which is a perfectly preserved neighbourhood from the Edo period. (c. 1600). All the businesses and shops are like they would have been over 450 years ago so explore every nook and cranny.
Osaka is a vision of beauty. The plum, peach and cherry blossom trees which line the orchards of Osaka Castle make an already perfect day even more so. Forgot your camera at home? We have you covered. Alleviate the stress with a friendly, local photographer to shoot professional pics along the way.
