Osaka, one of Japan's largest cities, lies on the south coast of western Honshu at the point where the River Yodo flows into the wide sweep of Osaka Bay, which opens out into the Pacific. Its location on the Yodo delta with its network of watercourses and canals spanned by more than a thousand bridges has, deservedly, earned Osaka the nickname of the "Venice of the East." While the origins of Osaka date back to the early days of the Japanese Empire, today it is undoubtedly one of the most modern cities in Japan, boasting a futuristic skyline along with countless impressive examples of modern architecture. Its world-class status is cemented by its many cultural institutions.
These include its many superb museums and art galleries, as well as its ultra-modern entertainment, theater, and music venues, which together add up to an endless list of unique things to do.There are 12 places to visit in Osaka like Osaka Castle, Shitenno-ji Temple, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, The Tempozan Ferris Wheel and Harbor Village, The Kobe Port Tower, Tsutenkaku Tower, The National Museum of Art, Osaka Tennoji Zoo & Park, Osaka Science Museum, The Umeda Sky Building, Universal Studios Japan, Tenmangu Shrine and the Tenjin Festival.
