Can't keep up with us, can you? On Monday we announced the launch of a new guide map: '101 things to do in Tokyo along the Seibu lines'. And today we've got another one for you: '50 things to do in Osaka'. Building on our recent travel feature, '48 hours in Osaka', we bring you more unique sights, attractions, restaurants and shops in this friendly city.
Experience Osaka's rich culture by exploring the cheap but delicious street foods like takoyaki (octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (savoury Japanese pancakes), the Hozenji alleyway with its lively atmosphere and traditional bars, and the neon streets of Nipponbashi. Visit the sophisticated Japanese restaurant Yu, which is featured on the guide map cover and tailors its dishes according to your tastes, showing off the essence of Osaka's generous people. Other interesting things to do include going clubbing in the city's gay district, eating breakfast on a boat with a grand view of Nakanoshima, and watching a bunraku puppet show.
Pick up a copy of the guide map at various hotels and tourist spots around Osaka, as well as major subway stations. They'll also be available at JAL counters at Shanghai, Bangkok, Taiwan, Honolulu and Los Angeles airports.
