Osaka locals have their own dialect and are perhaps a bit brasher than Tokyo-ites, so a night in the bars and restaurants of Dotonburi street is bound to be lively. The city boasts an impressive castle and is ideal for families with the world’s biggest aquarium and Universal Studios with its new Harry Potter World attraction. A highlight for us is the Jazz Boat which plies the canal nightly, with an excellent 5-piece live jazz band on board so you can drink in the music whilst gazing up at the building-high neon billboards. Shake your tambourine and feel at the centre of the action in this fun city.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
