    Eat ‘til you drop or dance ‘til dawn in Osaka

    Osaka's unofficial motto is "kuidaore", roughly translated as "eat yourself to bankruptcy". Dining your way towards financial ruin is all too easy here, with restaurants and food stalls on every corner serving local delicacies like takoyaki octopus balls and fluffy okonomiyaki savoury pancakes, alongside sublime fresh sushi and succulent seared meats slathered in tangy barbecue sauce. After feasting like royalty, resist the urge to crash in your cosy Osaka holiday rental, and check out the city's legendary nightlife. You can sink beers with friendly locals in laid-back bars, quaff expertly-mixed cocktails in elegant lounges or burn off some of those calories in a pulsing club.

    You'll find a diverse array of things to see within easy reach of your Osaka holiday rental. Located around 30 minutes by public transport from the city centre, Universal Studios Japan is among the country's best-loved family attractions. Here you can immerse yourself in the worlds of your favourite Hollywood movies, with thrilling rides, augmented 3D experiences and live shows based on everything from Despicable Me to The Terminator.

Here you can marvel at a wealth of cutting-edge Japanese modern art, as well as priceless masterpieces by the likes of Cézanne and Picasso. And Osaka Castle is a meticulous modern reconstruction of a resplendent 16th-century imperial residence, which today houses an interactive museum where you can learn all about the structure's turbulent history.
