Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Higashinada (Kobe Fashion Museum & Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Dotonbori, examine the collection at Mint Museum, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and make a trip to Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street.
