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.

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.

Autumn events in Japan

Autumn is a special season in Japan when it comes to cultural events. It is the season when temperatures aren’t either too hot or too cold, making it an ideal time to hold outdoor events. There are many events that have to do with national holidays such as Supo-tsu no Hi (スポーツの日) or “Sports day” which commemorates the Tokyo Olympics of 1964 and Bunka no Hi (文化の日) or “Culture day” which is a day to promote culture and arts.

There are also various events that have to do with the maple leaves turning red. The Kansai area is especially popular for having many places where you can visit and enjoy the beautiful colors displayed by these trees. Many places have night illuminations to enhance this experience as well.

Being autumn, there are also many events having to do with food. Autumn is the season of harvest, so you will encounter various Shrines having a Matsuri (harvest festival). Many restaurants and hotels also tend to have food fairs of seasonal ingredients such as chestnuts, sweet potatoes, persimmon, and pacific saury among others.

Now that you know a little bit about autumn-related Japanese culture, here is the event list in Osaka this week (November 7 to 13, 2022).
