Vibes of Osaka

Before going to Osaka, you will hear many thing about this city: the best night life in Japan, friendly and relaxed people, amazing street food and the vibrant atmosphere. This is is all true!

Situated right in the center of the main Japan’s island, Osaka is a must stop for those who want to see and explore the urban side of Japan, yet explore the beautiful Kansai region with day trips. Nara, Himeji castle, Kobe with its famous and expensive beef, even Hiroshima are an easy JR train ride away from Osaka.
Here is my photo journey though the different sides of Osaka.
