Nice little city

Reviewed 11 June 2013
You can easily reach Osaka by bullet train in just over 3 hours, this is the next pit stop from Kyoto. Osaka is best known for it's Aquarium, the world's largest. It has some fascination collection of sea animals and you will see seals and dolphins jumping around.

Also, the largest ferris wheel in the world is right next to the Aquarium and you can see spectacular views of the city from atop. Osaka has a majestic dockyard and the city is bustling with activity.
