Megan and Mikael’s Osaka Essentials
1. 4G WiFi Device
Megan and Mikael both love to keep their followers updated on their adventures, and to do that, they heavily relied on Klook’s 4G WiFi Device. This portable device was the perfect travel essential for navigating Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara, and of course – their Instagram stories!
2. Osaka Amazing Pass
Our Klook OTP wouldn’t have made it through Osaka’s best sights without the Osaka Amazing Pass. With this pass, they were able to enjoy unlimited subway rides, and even free admission to popular attractions like the Umeda Sky Building!
3. Kintetsu Rail Pass
In order to travel from Osaka to Kyoto and Nara, the pair found that the Kintetsu Rail Pass was their best transport option! By purchasing their passes through Klook, the journey was absolutely seamless and convenient.
4. Nankai Express Rail
To kick start their Spring Fling adventure, Megan and Mikael found that the Nankai Express Rail was the most cost-efficient way to get from the Osaka Airport to Namba Station, which was a short taxi ride from their accommodation.
Megan and Mikael’s Klook recommended activities
1. Osaka Aquarium
First stop on their Spring Fling adventure was no other than the Osaka Aquarium. The pair took the subway using their Osaka Amazing Pass and set off to marvel at whale sharks, rockhopper penguins, and manta rays to name a few! By booking via the Klook app, they wasted no time as they were able to skip the line by simply presenting their mobile voucher!
2. Umeda Sky Building
Next stop – Umeda Sky Building. The duo, Mikael especially, had a memorable experience from 100 feet above the ground – and Megan’s face shows how incredibly unforgettable it was! Kidding aside, the couple did admit to having a great time despite Megan’s fear of heights. How could they not with the amazing views offered from the top of the building?
3. Ninja Workshop
Here’s to trying new things together! Megan and Mikael put their ninja skills, and relationship, to the test with a fun Ninja Workshop. This activity definitely isn’t the first you’d think of doing with your significant other, but these two proved that you can get a lot of laughs out of it!
4. Cherry Blossom Tour in Kyoto
The Instagram-famous couple are known to tour the local route during their travels, however, even this duo wasn’t exempt from getting giddy over Japan’s most touristy attraction during the spring – cherry blossoms! That said, they booked a private car charter to Kyoto and set off on their sakura chase!
For a limited time, you can book a special Cherry Blossom private car charter route and explore sakura-filled destinations including Yodogawa Riverside Park, Heian Shrine, Keage Incline, and Kodaiji Temple.
5. Day trip to Nara
On their final day in Japan, Mikael and Megan took the Kintetsu Rail from Osaka to Nara, which is roughly 40 minutes away, and made a date out of it!
After taking pictures and feeding the deer at Nara Park, the pair checked out local temples like the Kofukuji and Todaiji Temple to learn a little bit about Nara’s colorful history.
Megan and Mikael’s Osaka Food Recommendations
1. Guenpin Fugu
Mikael and Megan took on the challenge and tried the dangerous puffer fish in Guenpin Osaka! Chefs who prepare this kind of dish have trained for years to receive a fugu license, so you’ll definitely receive the safest and highest quality of puffer fish in the country.
2. Steak Sakura
There’s no better place in the world to munch on Kobe beef than Japan! The duo marched into Steak Sakura in Osaka for some melt-in-your-mouth steak – and that’s what they got! Book yourself the Kobe Beef Teppanyaki Course with Reservation and enjoy a discounted course meal this Sakura season.
3. Isomaru Suisan Bar
It’s practically a sin to visit Japan and skip out on sushi and sashimi, and our foodie travel buddies can’t agree more! For fresh seafood, Megan and Mikael made their way to the Isomaru Suisan Bar in Osaka for a unique dining experience. They opted for the Upgraded Set with Reservation, and enjoyed dishes like Fresh Abalone, Sashimi Plate, and the Seafood BBQ Plate!

Megan’s obsession with cold noodles led her to Okakita, a tiny udon noodle restaurant, and we can’t help but drool over her order! Although she had to wait 30 minutes for a seat, we’d totally do the same if it looked THAT good!
Is it possible to go wrong with Ichiran? No trip to Japan is complete without a trip to this popular ramen house – and both Megan and Mikael gave this one a two thumbs up!
