Osaka, like all Japanese cities, bustles with an eclectic assortment of fun activities. 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). The Hep Five Ferris Wheel is on (and in) the Hep Five shopping center just beside Osaka Station, rising 106 meters above the city. The natural environments of the Pacific "Ring of Fire," the volcanic perimeter that surrounds the Pacific, have been recreated in 14 separate exhibits and populated with over 35,000 specimens representing 380 species in the Osaka Aquarium. The Sega Amusement Theme Park is on the eighth and ninth floors of a shopping mall and the arcade overloads the senses with flashing lights, bells and whistles, and throngs of squealing kids and teenagers. Established in 1924, the old Hanshin Koshien Stadium is home to the Hanshin Tigers and once played host to Babe Ruth. Japanese culture is famous for its "niche appeal," with something for every offbeat taste. You'll find Osaka no different as you explore its myriad fun things to do.
