Travel Guide | How I Spent A Day In Osaka, Japan

My travels in Japan started in Tokyo for 4 days, Kyoto for 2 days, and ending off in Osaka 4 days. It’s a pretty common route for many, but if I could do it again I would skip Osaka and spend more time in Kyoto. It’s hard to get away from the feelings you get from the picturesque small town feel of Kyoto and then all of a sudden jump into vibrant neon lights mini Tokyo and in my opinion, full of tourist traps. For those of you who don’t know, Kyoto is exactly what the stereotype of Japan is with women walking around with kimonos and small narrow alleys with many traditional local bars, shops and restaurants. The architecture in the city is preserved to keep the old time feel of Japan as well.

The impression Osaka gives off to me is that it’s a seedier city resembling it’s capital in only some aspects. It’s looser, more relaxed on the laws, and unfortunately dirtier in relation to Tokyo. Not the way I would like to end my trip in Japan, but hey, at least I’m travelling with great people.
