One of the Osaka landmarks covered by the Osaka Amazing Pass is Osaka Castle. This historical site harks back to the era when armored samurai battled for supremacy to rule Japan.

Today, the castle stands as a popular attraction for those seeking insight into Japan's traditional culture and the natural beauty of the surrounding park. Throughout autumn and spring, visitors can revel in the park’s exquisite seasonal flowers and trees, making it especially captivating during the cherry blossom season.

Inside the old castle keep, visitors discover a surprisingly modern interior, featuring an information center on the life of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, one of the three great generals of Sengoku-period Japan.

Pass Highlight No. 2: Legoland Discovery Center Osaka

A newer attraction that is included on the Osaka Amazing Pass, the Legoland Discovery Center is an excellent family outing for both kids as well as the kids at heart.

Lego is a worldwide phenomenon that has inspired people to build and create, and in recent years, it has also become a way for adults to regain some peaceful "me time."

At the Legoland Discovery Center, visitors can witness an entire miniature replica of Osaka made entirely from Lego, as well as partake in building their own racers to test out on a specially designed course.

Finally, they can relax and enjoy the 4D cinematic experiences on offer, promising great fun for kids of all ages!

The arches of the escalator at Umeda Sky Building form a sort of portal that transports you to one of the most beautiful city skylines in Japan.

Rising 173 meters high, the building towers over the vibrant entertainment and business district of Umeda, offering a 360-degree open-air observation deck for fearless visitors.

But within the tower, there are also plenty of experiences to be had. Why not take a stroll through Japan in the 60s and relive a retro bygone era? Alternatively, if you're an art enthusiast, you'll find interest and excitement on the 27th floor where you can view the eclectic works of the modern artist Koji Kinutani.

Pass Highlight No. 4: Admission to the Tsutenkaku Tower
