  • Comments

Located in the Kinki region on Honshu Island, Osaka is Japan’s third largest and second most important city. Thanks to its strategic location and global status as a trading center of many international waterways, the city was designated as the capital in mid 7th century.

Not only does Osaka see a harmonious blend of human life and nature, but it also converges tradition and modernity, past and present into one unified mass, making it an ideal destination for all types of travelers.

Osaka experiences a humid tropical climate. From March to mid-April, spring arrives with crisp breezes, signaling the beginning of cherry blossoms. Summer lasts from June to September when the temperature can climb up to 36°C. The seasonal changes become more distinct from October onwards when it’s much colder at night. Snow is more intense in January and February of the following year.
