Osaka, the culinary capital of Japan

Osaka is a thriving, fast paced metropolis, an ideal place to stay for a couple of days. If you like street food, this is the city for you! 

  • Foodie Haven, street food galore.
  • Markets, shopping arcades & neon lights.
  • Go-kart tour in costume!

Head to the entertainment district of Dotonbori and sample the marvellous street food, maybe some grilled octopus? Or, you can even find pizza! This area is always buzzing with activity, even at night time.  Walk through the market of Kuromon Ichibia and stop at the bridge crossing the Dotonburi-gawa canal to get good photos of all the flashing neon lights. Look out for the giant crab!

Japan Holiday

Nara, a cultural haven.

The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Osaka for a day, only 45 minutes away on the train.  This ancient Japanese capital is full of UNESCO sights to witness, most of which are found around Nara-Koen, a beautiful park.  This park is full of roaming deer, who were thought to be messengers of the gods.   

Visit the iconic glistening Great Buddha at Todai-ji, found inside one of Earth’s largest wooden buildings.  There is a well-known pillar in the temple with a 50cm hole through its base, normally with a line of people trying to squeeze through. It may be worth it, as you are guaranteed enlightenment if you can make it through!

Sit on a tatami mat and have a tea at the beautiful Isuien Garden, a perfect example of a Japanese garden.
