Best Ryokans in Osaka Explore Ryokans in Osaka >
Ryokans are the perfect way to discover old Japanese culture and traditions.
There are many things to do for locals and visitors and as a special highlight you can use a huge barbecue area there with grills for everyone. Hattori Ryokuchi Park was selected as one of the best 100 urban and historical parks in Japan. My tip: In July you can see the blossoming of hundreds of lotus flowers. The best place for this spectacle is from the Shiratori Bridge, which crosses the Yamagaike pond.
