A Destination for Food Lovers


Like all train stations in Japan, Osaka Station is full of options for snacks and meals for all cravings.

The railway station first opened in 1874. The completed renovation in 2011 exhibited modernity in its architecture and design.

With two major department stores and a commercial complex next door, the station is a destination for food lovers.

Isetan and Daimaru each have their massive food halls in the basement floors, as well as prime restaurant choices on the top floors.

A short walk over is Grand Front Osaka. GFO is a multi-building destination for shopping and dining. It is also home to the Intercontinental Hotel Osaka.

The best pizza I have had thus far at Echi Ponte Vecchio. Better than Italy and the U.S. Japan has perfected Italian and French cuisines.

Quality sushi at affordable prices. Look at the presentation of this amaebi three ways at Kantarou.
