Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best and most popular times to visit Osaka are the climatically stable seasons of spring (March to May) and autumn (late September to November). The highlight of spring is the cherry-blossom season, which usually arrives in Osaka in early April. Bear in mind, though, that the blossoms are notoriously fickle, blooming any time from late March to mid-April. Autumn is an equally good time to travel, with pleasant temperatures and soothing autumn colours, which usually peak between late October and mid-November. Of course, you can visit Osaka at any time of year, although the summer, from June to August, can be very hot and humid, and winter can be a little chilly for some people’s taste.

Just a 15 minute car ride from Osaka train station and a 5 minute walk from the metro station, the Ritz-Carlton Osaka is the ideal place to stay while exploring Japans self proclaimed foodie capital. Walking into the hotel lobby the hotel boasts grand chandeliers and ornate decorations almost as if this luxury Japanese hotel has a British twist. No matter what room category you choose to stay in, every room offers soaring views over Osaka. However, to maximize your city view request a corner view. Throughout your time at The Ritz Carlton Osaka take time to dine at one of  the hotels five restaurants, including their Michelin star French restaurant. If your room permits, enjoy happy hour at the Club Lounge before dining downstairs.

The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka is the best luxury accommodation option in Osaka. Located a short walk from one of the two main train stations that connects to Kyoto in 30 minutes, it would also be a great choice for those wanting to explore Kyoto during peak season without paying the peak season accommodation costs. Attentive service is delivered with a smile and the views across the city are superb, especially at night time. I would highly recommend upgrading to Club Lounge access to be able to benefit from a quieter check in area and to enjoy breakfast and cocktail hour with views.
