My husband and I spent 3 days in Osaka 2 years ago. Osaka is very japanese. We had a hard time getting around most things written not in words. People speak almost no english. But we had a great time. We went to the palace which was wonderful and very interesting.

Lisa,
Did you go to see the aquarium while you was in Osaka. If so do you think it would be worth spending our time to go there or would we see more interesting things elsewhere in the city?

I went to see it 4 years ago, it was really worth the visit. The Castle is really interesting too.

Go to the Dotombori area (popular
hangout area in Osaka), do
some shopping and try okonomiyaki
(Osaka-area specialty food).

The commute to and from the airport
can take over an hour each way.

To the Aquarium, take a train to Tennoji or Osaka station, then the Chuo line subway.

The Aquarium "Ring of Fires" is a must-see.

Have fun!

Jitsu wa
Osaka wa SHOMONAI!!Osaka sucks. I wasted 3.5 years of my life working there. Dont waste your time going to see it. The only thing that is good is the amount of whores they have posing as 'Hostesses' If this is your idea of fun go to SHinsaibashi and Kitasenchi to have sex. But it will cost you alot and they dont take credit cards. have fun

Because you couldn't see anything pleasant in Osaka doesn't mean there isn't. Sorry you had a bad time there, many people I know enjoyed it, without ever going in any disreputable area. Each to his own.
