4 Nights in Osaka, Japan

My family and I just took a trip to Osaka this past week.  It was our first time going to Osaka and to ride the Shinkansen (bullet train).  For the Shinkansen, we brought our tickets the when we arrived at the station.  We wanted reserved seat, for two adults and one child.  We were offered the option to lap sit toddler girl (3 yrs old) and she would be free. But for comfort for all three of us, she always gets her own seat. Once in Osaka, we used the train/subway system and it was very easy.  Our hotel (Hilton Osaka) was right across the street from the Osaka Station, it was very easy to get around the city. Here is a look at what we did each day.  I’ll write a separate post for each activity as well.
