Osaka is such a beautiful city with so much to see and do. Don’t miss these must-see sights when you’re planning your next trip to Japan!

 

Osaka Castle

A stop by Osaka Castle and walk around the grounds is definitely not to be missed when you’re visiting Osaka. The castle was rebuilt in 1931 and inside you’ll find a museum about the castle’s rich history. Make your way to the observatory for some panoramic views of the area.

Dotonbori

Talk a night time stroll through Dotonbori for an abundance of restaurants, bars and arcades. An alleyway of note is Hozenji Yokocho, located next to Dotonbori street, which has an old school Edo era feel to it and many shops and cafes.

Itsukushima-jinja Shrine

Hiroshima & Miyajima

Whilst not in Osaka city, if you have the time Hiroshima & Miyajima are definitely worth a day trip from Osaka. Take a walk through the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and then make your way to the island of Miyajima. Miyajima is famous for its Itsukushima-jinja Shrine, a large torii gate, which appears to float on the water at high tide.
