  • Dotombori

    Osaka Things to Do

    The Dotonbori area centres around the Dotonbori-gawa Canal. This area is famous for food and restaurants. It is an interesting area to wander around after dark as many of the restaurants have huge flashing or moving neon signs. The Hozen-ji Temple which dates from the 17th century can also be found in this area.

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Osaka Restaurants

    I could give you a long list of recommended places to eat but I'm afraid they would be useless to you. The action at the street level is so thick that a tourist has little chance of being able to locate one specific location, unless they can read Japanese and have a GPS. I don't think it's to your benefit to spend a lot of time hunting down...

  • Mino Falls

    Minoo Things to Do

    Nearly everyone who comes to Mino comes to see the waterfall! It has been designated as one of Japan's Top 100 Waterfalls and is the only one in Osaka Prefecture on the list. The walkway to the falls is very scenic and not at all strenuous. For those who enjoy serious hiking, the paved path leading all the way to the falls might be a letdown but...

  • Local Specialty

    Minoo Restaurants

    Mino doesn't have a local delicacy (as in, a dish) but when you visit, there is a food you are supposed to eat and that is the momiji/koyo tempura (Deep-fried autumn leaves). Rarer but still festive are the momiji/koyo croquettes. In both cases the leaf does not really contribute anything to the taste, so trying it is mostly just for the experience...

    Izumi-Sano Transportation

    There are 2 train companies serving from Rinku town train station. JR and NankaiI prefer getting to Osaka city areas (Namba and Umeda) from Rinku Town via the Nankai Line. This is because it can cost about the same as JR's prices, but you can get there considerably faster. On the NANKAI train network:Just get on any of the trains (except Rapit). If...

  • Hirakata Park

    Hirakata Things to Do

    Also called "Hirapaa", it is a theme park, with shows, rides, and even a nice rose garden. The rides are family-friendly, because it is a children's theme park, but there are activities that anyone can enjoy. The adventures are particularly interesting (some more than others), and for me, they were quite unique attractions. Taking colored orbs...

    Suita Things to Do

    It probably seems odd to call it a "Japanese garden", because this is Japan, after all, but the garden in Expo Park was designed to be a "typical Japanese garden", so that visitors could experience this aspect of Japan right here in the park back when the Expo was going on.You can still visit today. There is a large central pond and a path that...
