For centuries, Osaka was Japan's cultural and commercial gateway to Asia - the point of entry both for trade goods and, most importantly, cultural influences that shaped Japanese society.
We had a good tour including Osaka Castle and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine. We did not have an opportunity this trip to go to Kyoto or Nara. Had we done so, I am sure I'd rate this destination as a six star place.
