One of the most famous areas in Osaka. If you`ve seen pictures of the big neon signs in Osaka, they`re probably pictures of this place. Good food and good shopping. Maybe take a small boat cruise down the river.
One of the most visually stunning castles in Japan. It used to be Toyotomi Hideyoshi`s castle until Tokugawa Ieyasu took it over. It was destroyed and rebuilt like many of the castles in Japan. If you`re a history buff, this place is a must. Keep an eye out for special events such as projection mapping. It`s amazing!
