Everyone knows, Osaka is my favorite city in the world. Before Tokyo became the capital of Japan, Nara used to be the capital, which is close to Osaka. To me the west of Japan is the origin of Japanese culture and that´s why I feel so happy in Osaka and always return. While I´ve been working with Noku hotels in Kyoto, Singapore and Maldives already, I finally came to explore the Osaka property during the last days of my stay in Japan..

The area is really convenient, offering great connections to all location in Osaka. Its also easy to arrive when coming from other cities in japan, such as I did, as I was traveling from Wakayama to Osaka. My room offered a double bed and a simple but modern interior. I really enjoyed the photo wall, which is a unique detail of the hotel. All over the property one can explore photos and inspiring content. The staff speaks English and assisted me so well, when I was looking for a mochi shop, as I wanted to bring some delicious souvenirs back home. However, Osaka is known as the food capital of Japan and with a lively neighborhood one gets to explore the flavors of the world in Osaka.
