Event List in Osaka This Week (July 3 to 9, 2023)
The best events, activities, and exhibitions held this week in Osaka
Osaka has a lot of fun and interesting places to visit as well as tourist attractions. Osaka Castle, USJ, Kaiyukan, Shinsekai, etc… If you visit Osaka, you will need to stay for a few days to enjoy all the tourist attractions the city has to offer.
However, if you live in Osaka, or if you’re planning on visiting Osaka for a prolonged amount of time, you might run out of popular tourist places to visit. If this happens, the next thing you can do is check out events that you can be part of within the city.
Osaka, one of Japan’s largest cities, has many events happening simultaneously. From art exhibitions, theatrical performances, and musical concerts to cultural festivals and seasonal food-related events. Because so many things happening at the same time, you might overlook an event you would have liked to check out.
Hopefully, that is where this article may help you to avoid exactly that. In this article, I will share 10 of the most talked about events happening this week in Osaka. If you live in Osaka and have some free time, or if you happen to be visiting Osaka during this week, then I hope at least one of these events will interest you to check it out.
Summer events in Japan
Summer is the time of the year when people are most energized; families and friends gather together to do things, travel to places, etc. For people who live in Osaka or are planning on visiting Osaka, you should know that this is the time of the year when there are most numbers of events (especially outdoor events) happening across the prefecture.
Festivals such as Omatsuri, Fireworks festivals, food festivals, and music festivals are just some examples of the excitement that Summer will bring to Osaka.
When it comes to Japanese traditional events, there is Marine Day (海の日) and Japanese Summer Star Festival (七夕) in July, Mountain Day (山の日) in August, and Respect for the Aged Day (敬老の日) in September. Other than this, Obon (お盆) takes place in either mid-August or July. Obon is the Buddhist festival to welcome the spirits of your ancestors, one of Japan’s most important holidays.
Here are some articles about things to do during Summer in Japan.
