Did You Know?
Like many metropolitan areas on the Honshu Island, Osaka was virtually leveled by US bombing during World War II. This devastation resulted in makeshift concrete facades, which continue to dominate Osaka's skyline. Despite its lacklustre appearance however, Osaka is home to a number of historical and entertainment venues including Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium (the largest in Japan!), and Universal Studios Japan.
Osaka is Japan's second largest city and located approximately 215 miles/346 kilometres west of Tokyo. Osaka sits in proximity to popular tourist destinations including Kyoto and Nara.
