  • A lot of people think Osaka is the coolest city in Japan. It certainly has a lot of cool things to do. Like the Suntory Museum, which is a fantastically modern-looking structure near the aquarium, designed by well-known architect Tadao Ando. It stages changing exhibitions in airy rooms against a dramatic background of the sea beyond its glass walls. If your kids are along, they'll think the Disney Store is pretty cool, located in the hip Hep Five shopping center. First built in the 1580s on the order of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Osaka Castle was the largest castle in Japan, a magnificent structure used by Toyotomi as a military stronghold from which to wage war against rebellious feudal lords in far-flung provinces. Located within Osaka Castle, the Osaka City Museum gives a comprehensive introduction to the history, economy and culture of Osaka from the Paleolithic Age to the Edo Period (1603-1867). Start at these places and then explore for yourself the many other cool things to do in Osaka.
