Why visit Osaka ?
Osaka, formerly known as Naniwa, is located in central Japan. Third largest city in Japan, Osaka is crossed by many rivers, the main one being the Yodo. Its castle worth a visit. Located on the heights of the city, the view is breathtaking. The park around is very pleasant, especially in spring when the cherry trees are blooming. Don’t miss the Shitennoji Temple either. Built in 593, it is the oldest in Japan. The city is also famous for its quality of life and its warm atmosphere which differentiate it from Tokyo. To realize it, just have a walk in the street Dotombori. Situated along the eponymous canal, it’s known for its shops and restaurants with bright and colourful fronts. In the past, Dotombori Street also housed six Kabuki theatres and five Bunraku theatres. They were slowly ignored by the Japanese before being destroyed during the bombings during the Second World War.
