Osaka is Japan’s third largest city, which has a unique identity characterised by a penchant for good food and lively fun. The 16th-century merchant city grew into an industrial powerhouse in the 20th century and has nowadays been transforming into a progressive modern arts hub. A plethora of galleries and futuristic architecture have been popping up, most prominently, the landmark Umeda Sky Building with its 2 towers linked by a sky bridge. 

    Osaka is home to some of Japan’s most interesting cultural attractions, including the National Bunraku Theatre which shows extraordinary traditional puppet shows. The city is roughly divided into 2 centres, north and south, and is easily navigable. Kita (north) Osaka is the main business district, accessible from Osaka and Umeda stations. Minami (south) Osaka is home to many shopping centres, entertainment and nightlife venues, accessible via Namba and Shinsaibashi stations.
