Cheap Flights to Osaka, Japan

Japan’s third largest city, Osaka, is a city of colour, filled with some of the best aspects of Japanese culture, from the traditional street markets offering delicious street food, to the towering skyscrapers which show the modern, metropolitan side of the city.

One of the most important things to the people of Osaka is food. In fact, their unofficial slogan is kuidaore, which means ‘eat until you drop’. This is something that you can see in the street markets selling tempting treats, to high-end restaurants serving traditional dishes in luxurious surroundings.

Osaka is one of the great places to see the iconic cherry blossoms of Japan, particularly if you visit around March/April. However, alongside the natural beauty of the cherry blossoms and the waterways of the Dotonbori canal, you’ll find a sprawling metropolitan cityscape with a towering skyline which could compete with that of Tokyo.
