What to Expect
When it comes delicious foods, we cannot skip dining in Osaka .
Though all kinds of Japanese dishes from seafood to meat are there, Osaka-originated foods, Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki should be placed on the center of gourmet world. In Kuromon-ichiba market and Dotombori street, couldn't have been better meal are there. In addition being tasty, its price is reasonable.
From 17th to 19th century, Osaka experienced turbulent period, in Civil War led by two Samurai leadres, Toyotimi family and Tokugawa family. Before long stable era featured by Tokugawa Shogunate, lasting 220 years until mid-19th century in Tokyo, relentless battle took place at Osaka-jo castle between two families. When visiting Osaka jo castle, people learn about what a Samurai era like was.
There are a lot of nice and affordable-priced shopping town in Osaka. I'd like to recommend Shinsaibashi shopping street for classy
atmosphere and Tenjinbashi shopping street for casual feeling.
