"OSAKA" Osaka by heywinks

Osaka Travel Guide: 875 reviews and 2,535 photos

Osaka is an hour away from where I live by express train. I don`t come here so often now, about once every month or so.
I lived here for about 8 months a few years ago & really enjoyed my stay there.
Now, I love visiting Banpaku Park when I go to Osaka & also shopping in Umeda. My favorite shabu shabu restaurant is located in Osaka as well! Yeah, shabu!! Oishi! Delicious!

    Sonia, how much do you miss Japan? Probably as much (if not more) as I do Massachusetts. Have you returned since leaving? Do you keep in contact with any of your former students?

    The no tattoo's rule is because the people most likely to have tattoos in Japan are Yakuza

    My least favorite airport on the planet (maybe I'm spoiled). I'll never fly there again.

    Is one allowed to climb on the bridge like that? :) Osaka seems like the perfect place for shopping!
