Where to Stay in Osaka

As Japan’s second city and a fast developing tourist hub, Osaka is home to a wide variety of accommodation choices to suit every budget with five-star luxury hotels, budget hostels and traditional Japanese ryokans being just some of the options available.

From the stunning 16th-century Osaka Castle to the modern marvels, themed rides and live entertainment of Universal Studios Japan, the city has plenty to offer the near ten million visitors who arrive each year. As well as its historical landmarks and a wealth of traditional Japanese attractions, Osaka also has plenty of shopping and dining options particularly around the extravagant and dazzling neon lights and store fronts of Dotonbori.

With unlimited travel cards available, the subway is the most convenient way to get around the city. The subway boasts eight lines with the Midosuji Line, which runs from north to south and stops at many of the city’s major areas, including Shinsaibashi, Namba, Shin-Osaka and Tennoji, being the most useful for tourists. Osaka also has a bus system but it can be difficult to navigate.

Enjoyed my solo trip in Osaka. I really had a good time, 6 days in Osaka felt kind of short - there’s just so much to see in this region. I’ll definitely come back.
