Osaka will be firmly cast into the spotlight in 2019 with the launch of a new direct service from London Heathrow from March and several rugby matches taking place in the city in the autumn. But it's not just the rugby that travellers will find exciting about Osaka. It boasts a crazy and colourful nightlife and is famous for its incredible street food. Visitors will go wild for local specialities; okonomoiyaki and takoyaki (octopus balls). It's also conveniently located in central Japan with Tokyo and Kyoto an easy train ride away.
If you'd like to sample the delights of Osaka for yourself, the experts at InsideJapan can incorporate it into any tailormade itinerary.
