25 Things to do in Osaka | Japan Travel Guide 🇯🇵

In this Japan travel guide, we are sharing 25 things to do in Osaka!

Affectionately known as Japan’s Kitchen, Osaka was the first stop of our trip to Japan and a wonderful place to eat! We dove straight into the local cuisine visiting markets, street food stalls, and restaurants that required ordering from ticket vending machines.

But our trip to Osaka (大阪市) wasn’t all food. In between all the eating, we also managed to visit towering skyscrapers, hidden temples, and retro gaming arcades – all of them complete surprises.

So if you’re curious about what there is to see and do in this city, stick around and let us show you 25 things to do in Osaka, Japan!

Transportation in Osaka, Japan:

Now a quick note on transportation in Osaka (大阪市). When it comes to getting around the city, subways and trains are your best bet.

We spent our first few days buying one-way tickets and day passes, which in retrospect was a bit of a headache. The easiest thing to do is to get a prepaid card where you can load money as needed.

Osaka’s version of this card is called Icoca, but you can also use Pasmo and Suica in the city.

And that’s a wrap for our Osaka travel guide. We hope you found this video helpful and that it gave you some ideas of things to do in Osaka on your own trip.
