Traveling to Japan for foodies

In order: weather, food, culture, experiencing historical tours and spending time at the beach are the biggest decision-making factors when planning a trip, says Skyscanner. In this case, visiting Japan checks most of these boxes, however, food is the highlighted reason.

Japan’s biggest cities rank pretty high on the Michelin Guide, Tokyo being the city with the most michelin-starred restaurants in the world  with 203, Kyoto coming third with 108 and Osaka in fourth with 96. Be that as it may, Osaka is the city nicknamed “The Kitchen of Japan”.

Visit Osaka, Japan in 2024

Even Viator corroborates that “culinary tours are a must” in Osaka. Within its top 10 things to do are the Kuromon Ichiba Market and Dotonbori district, known for its gastronomic experiences. Tripadvisor also shows Foodie Walking Tour in Dotonbori & Shinsekai, Absolute Osaka Food Tour and Ramen cooking class as some of the most popular activities in Osaka.

Another really attractive aspect of Osaka are the prices, Skyscanner shows flights from Madrid to Osaka starting at 350 Euros with stops and Airbnb has an average of 40 Euros per night for an apartment. However, Booking has a median of 250 Euros for three nights at a hotel. All of these seem like very reasonable prices for a long trip to Japan.
