Kita

3
A Kita holiday offers a great deal of varied attractions that cater to all kinds of modern urban explorers. Shopping malls, entertainment complexes, and the imposing glass-and-steel architecture remain the big draws in Kita tourism, while JR Osaka Station serves as the heart of the city's north downtown hub. While taking a walk through this vibrant business and transportation district, it is hard to imagine that its history dates back to ancient times. Just take a few turns from high-rise office blocks and the labyrinth of interconnected underground shopping malls, and you will find yourself roaming through small streets and alleys lined with authentic old buildings housing craft stores and cool cafes. No trip to Kita would be complete without getting a panoramic view of this bustling area from the iconic Ferris wheel or the observation deck on top of Umeda Sky Building. Kita is in Osaka. Take the guesswork out of planning a Japan vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
