Osaka has been a lively city and a center of social interchange.

Located at the confluence of a vast web of busy river and sea routes, it naturally grew into a flourishing economic center and became the gateway to Japan for travelers from all over the world. While you enjoy experiencing Osaka, we also hope you make the most of easy access from Osaka to many of other attractive cities such as the ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara.
