Tourist Info

Osaka castle

Built under orders of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Osaka castle, or Osaka-jo, is perhaps the landmark that symbolises Osaka. While the castle was designed to mirror that of Oda Nobunaga’s Azuchi Castle, Toyotomi aimed to also surpass the Azuchi castle in every way; the tower’s exteriors are decorated with glittering detail, such as the eight giant golden tigers glimmering against the black walls which characterise the former stronghold of Osaka.

Universal Studios Japan

Univeral Studios Japan is one of the biggest theme parks in Japan which is massively popular among Japanese and foreign tourists alike. While many of the attractions and rides in the park are similar to those from the Universal Studios in Orlando and Hollywood, the park underwent a huge expansion after an entirely new area in the park based off the Harry Potter series called the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was opened in 2014.

Dotonbori

Considered one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Dotonbori is a busy avenue running along the Dotonbori canal in the Nanba district. The area is associated with a popular Japanese notion of ‘Kuidaore’, meaning to overindulge yourself with delicious food, and is lined with many restaurants as well as the area’s signature extravagant neon and mechanised billboards.

Kuromon Ichiba Market

Kuromon Ichiba is one of the most well known central food markets in Osaka. Only 6minutes away from the building, 600m in terms of distance, and one stop away via train.

Shitenoji is the first Buddhist temple in Japan, and was build by Prince Shotoku, a great cultural hero of early Japanese history known for his Buddhist faith when the religion was still not widespread in the country. Named after the four heavenly kings, the temple was built to honour the kings by having four institutions, each designed with a different purpose.

Tsutenkaku

Tsutenkaku is the tower that symbolises the Shinsekai (New World) district of Osaka, which was originally designed to imitate the Eiffel Tower in Paris in 1912. After the landmark suffered damages from a fire in 1943, it was disassembled for its steel to be used in the war. After the citizens of Osaka lobbied to rebuild their beloved tower, the newly designed structure was opened in 1956, now illuminated with LED lights and advertising Hitachi on its sides.
