The culture of the masses shines in Osaka, but Osaka has other charms as well. It’s also a place to enjoy craftsmanship nurtured throughout history, along with luxurious and beautiful food, healing, good health, medical service, and lodgings.

Osaka, the origin of Japan’s medical science. Even now, the medical faculties of Osaka’s universities are making advances in cutting-edge medical treatment and regenerative medicine. Furthermore, Japan’s representative pharmaceutical companies are located in Osaka’s Doshomachi area. As it was once the center of Japanese culture and thought, Kansai has many temples, shrines, and sacred places to support your spiritual health as well. Given this background, many destinations in Osaka follow a theme of health. This is another side to Osaka’s charms for you to enjoy.
Osaka, a city with exacting standards for food. This food culture is also supported by traditional Japanese dashi stock, a key ingredient made from fish, shellfish, and kombu kelp. “Washoku” Japanese cuisine is recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UN World Heritage Centre, and also uses dashi to bring life to fresh ingredients. Osaka’s cuisine is low-calorie and uses healthy ingredients, for a health-conscious style we definitely recommend.
Osaka also offers access to Mt. Koya, a sacred site and religious center, and to the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage routes, which will take visitors back to nature. Experience contemplation or Zen meditation at Kyoto’s temples, then go to one of the many onsen hot spring baths nearby. Take this release from the rush of everyday life as a chance to reclaim your physical and mental health.
