From 683 to 745, Osaka was the capital of Japan, and even after the capital moved it still remained an important hub for land, sea, and river-canal transportation. Visit Osaka Castle and the surrounding Nishinomaru Garden, graced by over 4,000 cherry trees and a must-see in spring. Next up, go modern with the stunning 360-degree views of the city and surrounding areas from the Aerial Garden Observatory, over 165 meters above ground! Relax on a river cruise, passing Osaka Castle, Twin Towers, Nakanoshima Island, and much more, as you get a look at every side of this unique city.
