Cheap flights to Osaka

Osaka is an underrated travel destination – if you’re in Japan, you absolutely must make the time to go there or else you’re seriously missing out. Osaka is the place to see the infamous cherry blossoms during the Japanese spring, and is located in the heart of the Kansai region just over an hour away from Kyoto. A picturesque location, you won’t be able to go to Osaka without a trip to Dotonbori and Namba – the pleasure and theatre districts – complete with plenty of neon lights and seedy sights. For something more wholesome head to the Sumiyoshi-taisha Shrine, which is one of the oldest shrines in the world and heavily frequented by locals. If you are interested in sampling Japanese baseball, check out a game in Nishinomiya, just outside of Osaka – Koshien stadium is the most likely pick. Student Flights can get you to Osaka with our range of cheap flights, and if you’re under 26, a student or teacher, you can save even more Yen with our Black Market Flights.

About Osaka

The biggest city in the Kansai region of Japan, Osaka is located on the Yodo River and Osaka Bay and has rich history dating back to the Kofun period. Some must-sees include Shinsaibashi shopping district, Universal Studios of Japan, Osaka Castle, Shinsekai – modelled after New York and Paris prior to 1912, the Umeda Sky Building and Shitennoji Temple. Osaka offers up some great and graceful sites and it would be a shame to visit Japan without spending some serious time exploring there.
