    Last Christmas on the day I went, anyway people are often! Before entering the venue many people lined the hanging gardens and tired (laughs) stuck in many people, so I scored. Ate sausages, but was a long line to shop. Should we remove the Christmas time is recommended because the food is delicious, but I think.

    Was in the area on the way to the Sky Building. We had to go through an underground passage since there was construction being done. The place was fairly quite and empty particularly later at night when we left around 1900. There were taxis waiting near the street on the way back to the underground passage.

    Good views of the city at night. Advice: wear white so that you can take pictures of yourself in blue light

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
