Surrounded by a series of islands and ferries passing through narrow straits, the city of Osaka is a truly interesting one to arrive at, especially for cruise goers docking at the centrally located Tempozan Terminal. Views of the Aji River offer relaxation as passengers await the day on board, a well-organized promenade with instant views of Japan’s smallest mountain offering a calm all-in-one area good for organizing the day, or just hanging out. The Osaka Light Rail Station is just a few hundred feet away, making high-speed rides into the city especially easy. From there, guests can choose from various other transfer options that include private sedans, vans and SUVs best for quiet tours through town, or more practical meet-and-greet services ranging from the knowledgeable recommendations of a local personal driver as well as the fast drop offs to the Minato Ward via basic taxis.


Close to the cruise port are a few festive attractions that include the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, home to a vast collection of animal enclosures, afterward climbing for dramatic lookouts at Tempozan Park’s immediately accessible Mount Tempo, famous for being the smallest mountain in Japan. Between the aquarium and the mountain rests another vista, the Tempozan Giant Ferris wheel’s massive structure with dozens of closed gondolas, the frame nightly lit with vibrant colors by sunset. A couple more walking-distance hangouts near the port include the Osaka Culturarium at Tempozan, a renown exhibit of brightly colored pop characters, the isolated Glion Showroom home to a quieter warehouse of old vintage cars. Travel east for astounding history at the cherry blossom-lined base and towering views from Osaka Castle, located at the heart of Osaka Castle Park and offering a myriad of cultural perspectives. At sunset, walk amongst the people at Kuromon Market Osaka afterward, enjoying conversation with a buffet of street food before returning to the ship.
