Osaka Travel guide
Osaka : Michelin's recommendations
The American mission in 1945 was to destroy Osaka. Mission accomplished: Osaka was devastated. It was then rebuilt by the Japanese over the course of the decades. With its skyscrapers and underground buildings, the new urbanism borders on anarchic but the city is more Japanese and more exhilarating than ever. A spirit of carpe diem and money are the guiding lights of Osaka, which doesn't look like much, but whose hedonism is promising. It has been a port since its origins, and cosmopolitan Osaka is full of surprises. Japan's third city has 3 million intrepid inhabitants living at the city's frantic pace.
