Osaka, Japan (Day 1: Umeda District)

Last April 2014, I finally traveled with my family to one of my dream destinations – Japan. For the most part of the trip, we toured around Osaka with the inclusion of a day tour around Nara and Kyoto.

Our flight was around noon time so we arrived in the afternoon at Kansai International Airport. We initially had problems communicating with our pick-up from the airport so the delay did not give us much time for the rest of the day.

We went straight to Umeda district to check-in at Hilton Osaka.

At night time, we just strolled around the nearby area. The weather was still cold and breezy during the time that we visited. We were so delighted (which we later regretted) with the cold weather in contrast with the hot summer back in Manila.

For dinner, we just passed by Daimaru (in Osaka Station).

We were able to pass by the supermarket as well. This was a “teaser” for what’s in store for us during the rest of our trip.

I can’t wait to wake-up the next morning and start touring the rest of Osaka. I came prepared for this trip!

    1. Hi Moritz! Yes, Hilton Osaka is a good place to stay. I cannot compare it to other hotels as I’ve only stayed here during my only trip to Osaka. It is very near the Osaka Station so it is very convenient to go around. There’s not much going within the vicinity itself surrounding the hotel but you will find certain areas to hang around after a 5-10 minutes walk. You might also want to check out the Intercontinental at Grand Front Osaka which is on the opposite side of the main railway station. Should be better based on my research. Hope that helps!
