    One of Japan's most dynamic destinations

    Japan's third largest city is a vibrant hub of colourful neon lights, mouth-watering food, and a mind-boggling array of things to do and see. This dynamic metropolis bursts with a beautiful blend of Japanese history and contemporary culture, and you can't beat the nightlife on these busy streets. And it's scenic too: hundreds of bridges cross over the city's rivers and canals, and the Osaka Bay harbour houses all sorts of sights and entertainment. Whether you book Osaka vacation rentals in the city centre or its surrounding suburbs, you'll be immersed in a lively scene of interesting people, places and things.

    The nightlife of Osaka will rock-a your socks off

    In the middle of Osaka, the Dotonbori district is a popular place to shop your heart out, and catch some live entertainment like the classic Japanese dance-drama style known as Kabuki, and, of course, enjoy Osaka's delicious food. A huge part of the city's culture is its cuisine, so while you're here, sample some okonomiyaki – savory pancake – and some kushikatsu, because who doesn't love deep-fried meat or veggies on a stick? And night owls, get ready for ragin' nights. There are tons of 'gaijin' pubs that cater to foreign travellers, as well as discos to bring your dancing shoes too.

    Castles, crazy rides and a whole lotta culture

    The ornate Osaka Castle on the hilltop is the inevitable must-see here. One of Japan's most iconic landmarks, this impressive 16th-century palace and museum also has a moat and a park with beautiful cherry and plum trees. Got kids in your travel party? Definitely spend an exhilarating day at Universal Studios theme park, and check out one of the world's largest marine life displays at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Or head up to the observation deck at the Tsutenkaku tower to get a glimpse of the whole glimmering city. The temple Shitenno-ji, built in 563, is said to be one of Japan's first Buddhist shrines.

    Like Osaka itself, its seasons have lots of variety

    Osaka's climate offers 4 distinctive seasons, with the 'tsuyu' or rainy season happening between March and June. June is when the hot and humid summer weather starts rolling in, with August highs sometimes hitting the 30s. September and October are perfect times to book Osaka vacation rentals, as it's still hot, but the cool autumn air cuts the humidity. December and January temps fall in the upper single digits and, very rarely, snow falls and quickly dissolves.

    City slickers, you'll adore this urban escape

    Osaka's a city of stupendous sprawl that rests on mostly flat, low-elevation land. Its massive centre is split into north and south sections, known as Kita and Minami respectively. Skyscrapers, malls, offices and restaurants dominate this area, and to the north, east and south, the urban areas branch out for many kilometres, and the city's west side opens up to Osaka Bay, which is a scenic and popular area for Osaka vacation rentals. While you won't find many natural wildlife habitats in such a large city, there are zoos, wildlife parks and the aquarium where you can take in nature.
