Top 3 Places to Party in Osaka

The second largest metropolitan area in Japan following Tokyo, Osaka is the economic powerhouse of the Kansai Region. Formerly known as Naniwa, this is one place with a wealthy history dating back to the 16th century, when General Toyotomi Hideyoshi chose this place to build his palace. Though, when you step in today's Osaka, what you come across is the 1931 reconstruction, and the one refurbished in 1997. A sight to behold, the insides to the place treat you with an excellent collection of armour, art and of course the antique day-to-day implements- all hailing from the time of the castle. With a mouth-watering collection of food, it is recommended to set aside a budget to feed your hunger pangs, as otherwise you might have to celebrate a bankrupt holiday.
