Visit Osaka, Japan

Osaka is almost like Tokyo’s fun-loving younger brother (although it is in fact Japan’s third city, after Yokohama), with a definite taste for all the good things in life.

It may not be the one of the world’s most beautiful cities, but it has an easy-going swagger and a vibrant street life.
