Kick off your visit on the 31st (Tue): explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, then admire the landmark architecture of Umeda Sky Building, and then take a stroll through Dotonbori. Keep things going the next day: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan and then raise your glass at PC and Retro Bar Space Station.
