The good and bad of Hotel Sunroute Umeda, Osaka

by stephikins about Hotel Sunroute Umeda, Osaka

I had a lovely 5 night stay and by booking on the internet was able to save money. I would recommend this to anyone but please read below also. The website listed below is a good comparison for all hotels in Osaka and you can also book through here at a hotel of your choice. If you want to be close to almost everything in Osaka then this is a very reasonably priced hotel. It's easy to book online and also to find on a map. My stay here was quite enjoyable with some very friendly staff even if their English was not great. My Japanese is not good at all but we still managed to understand each other with the help of a dictionary.
There is no internet access here though but it is only about a 15 minute walk to an internet cafe.
There is also a fire engine / ambulance centre opposite the hotel so if you don't like the noise of sirens you may be better off finding somewhere else to stay. I didn't find the sirens annoying but thought it was worth mentioning.
There is also no laundry facilities but I don't know if this is common or not in Japan hotels.
Overall it was 15 minutes walk to Osaka station and from there you could find your way to anywhere. It is about 20 minutes walk to the longest shopping street in Japan, Temma but remember nothing there opens till 10am.
Remember to ask for a non smoking room if required.

Osaka and beyond!

by SandiM

Are there any nice waterfall areas between Osaka and Mt Koyo? I will be spending some time in this area (Okunoin Temple) and looking to shoot some photos of waterfalls that haven't already been done to death by other tourists. I see that Minoh Falls is nice, with a red bridge in the viewpoint (sweet!) but can you recommend another waterfall area that's not on the 'tourist' lists? something I can google up and see for myself? thanks!

This might be of interest to you. It's located in the south of Osaka Prefecture. It sounds like a great place:

Still in Kansai but much further south is the famous Nachi no Taki, part of the Kumano Kaido:

Travel Tips for Osaka

Suminoekoen Park

by mikegr

This is a pleasant wooded park with a shrine, baseball pitch and open-air swimming pool South West of the city centre.

Though not a must see sight in Osaka, it is probably worth visiting if you are in the city for a while and are missing the sight of trees. The pool also looks very inviting in Osaka's sticky Summer!

To get to the park, take the Yotsubashi (blue)line south to Suminoekoen Station - the park is a 1 minute walk to the North East of the station - and is clearly sign-posted.

The Floating Garden Observatory

by UKDaisy

A nice place to visit is the Floating Garden Observatory on the top of the Umeda Sky Building, you'll get a good 360 degree view of Osaka city without the obsruction of glass as the observatory is outdoors. The admission price is 700Yen (Nov 2005). Beware of the poster next to the ticket vending machines advertising a cost saving if you buy a combo ticket (all written in Japanese) - the photos shown are of the Umeda Sky Building and the ferris wheel on top of the Hep Five building - we were under the belief that this combo ticket would save us money for the ferris wheel too, but when we got to the Hep Five building, we found out that the combo ticket could only be exchanged of 3 amusement rides at the Joypolis Centre at Hep Five and not for the ferris wheel.

Not the America I Know!

by Rabbityama

America Mura, the "American village", came into existance in the 1970s from the growing popularity of American culture and fashion. Like nearby Dotombori, while it is mostly a shopping area, it has become an attraction. Amerika-mura is a hip and trendy place for Kansai's fashion-foreward to roam, shop, and be seen! Looking at the other shoppers and the shop owners for many visitors is more fun than actually shopping. There are also a lot of interesting/strange public art and shop displays. If you are interested in shopping, the clothing here is funky, eclectic, and urban.

Is it a good immitation of the real United States and real American culture? Well, aside from some red, white, and blue and the Statue of Liberty, I think it's safe to say that Amerika-mura has moved well beyond its inspiration: It has indeed become its own!
