On the 5th (Thu), get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori and then get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. On the next day, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tōdai-ji, and then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
