We have a trip to Osaka, Japan for the cherry blossoms next year, that's late March. This is our first time to Japan and I understand that we have to get a visa some 3 months before the actual trip. I also understand that Japan is an expensive place so we have increased our budget for the expenses. Of course, we have to learn a little Nihonggo. What other sights are there to see in Osaka? And what can we do there on our 4-night stay? We still don't have an accommodation since the trip is still next year. But does anyone here have a recommended hotel?
