Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, don't miss a visit to Shitennoji, get to know the resident critters at Tennoji Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Harukas 300 Observation Deck, then enjoy breathtaking views from Tsutenkaku, and finally admire the landmark architecture of Umeda Sky Building. Keep things going the next day: walk around Kemasakuranomiya Park, make a trip to Nakanoshima Park, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, then get to know the fascinating history of Hozenji Yokocho, then don't miss a visit to Hōzen-ji Temple, and finally take a stroll through Dotombori District.
