OSAKA PREFECTURE

Japan’s second-smallest prefecture is one of its most visited, thanks to the city of Osaka. The city has been witnessing a renaissance, with a huge increase in tourists as a result of cheap flights, smoother travel visa processes, and growing interest from other Asian nations. Don’t let the hordes put you off, as this vibrant area has so much to see and do.
The site of the 1970 Osaka Expo at Suita is a wonderful, family-oriented park with a host of natural features and fascinating remnants of the Expo. Izumisano has plenty to offer in natural sights, shopping and temples. Chihayaakasaka is a truly hidden treasure with pretty countryside and great hiking opportunities.
