Start Planning a Trip to Osaka Now

Named the #10 most liveable city in the world – and #1 in Japan – in the 2023 Global Liveability Index, Osaka is fast becoming a must-visit on any urban explorer’s wish list. Although inhabited for thousands of years, the “City of Water” – so named thanks to its myriad rivers, waterways and bridges – is decisively cosmopolitan.

A key business hub, it’s also notable for its dynamic nightlife, world-class shopping, important landmarks and striking architecture – including the new Four Seasons Hotel Osaka in the heart of the Dojima district, where historic sites and local businesses rub shoulders with western Japan’s commercial headquarters. The Hotel is within walking distance of the Umeda shopping, entertainment and business district; adjacent to glamorous Kitashinchi’s fine dining restaurants and bars; and a short walk to Nakanoshima, home to a thriving community of art galleries and museums.

Families will cherish time at nearby Universal Studios Japan, while nature lovers can avail of the city’s best leaf-spotting spots in the fall, and sakura (cherry blossoms) in spring.  Excitement is also building for Expo 2025, expected to attract as many as eight million international visitors from April through October next year.

Introducing Osaka’s First Modern Ryokan Experience

Four Seasons Hotel Osaka will introduce the city’s first modern ryokan experience in a major hotel.  Ryokans are small Japanese inns dating back to the 8th century, and still popular today, particularly in regions with onsen (hot springs).  The entire 28th floor of Four Seasons will house 21 guest rooms and suites decorated by SIMPLICITY designers as a contemporary interpretation of ryokan culture, including tatami mat flooring, sliding doors within each space, a platform bed (rather than the traditional roll on the floor), and a dining area that allows for traditional or standard seating.  The Gensui 玄水 will also have its own check-in desk, where guests will be personally welcomed with Four Seasons care.

An additional 154 rooms and suites are spread through the 29th to 35th floors (for a total of 175 throughout the Hotel).  Designed by CURIOSITY of Japan in a light, airy style that welcomes sunlight in through large windows, most accommodations have a thoughtfully-placed window seat to enjoy the views of the city, rivers and waterways.

The Hotel’s guest accommodations and its public spaces will showcase a contemporary art collection curated by Fumio Nanjo, featuring local artists and artisans.

Destination Dining

In a city known as one of Asia’s culinary capitals (there are currently 85 Michelin-starred restaurants in Osaka), Four Seasons will present six dining and drinking options. Jiang Nan Chun will offer an authentic Cantonese dining experience in an interactive setting that includes multiple private and semi-private dining rooms.  Also located on the 37th floor for a distinctly elevated dining experience is Sushi O, with a sleek wooden counter as well as a private dining room; and Bar Bota, with a dramatic circular bar surrounded by the city’s sparkling skyline.  

On the building’s first floor, Jardin will be an all-day dining option featuring an international breakfast, exquisite afternoon tea and French bistro classics with al fresco seating amid lush landscaping.  Rounding out the culinary offering, Farine will be an artisanal bakery perfect for picking up pastries and specialty coffees on the run, and CHA, a Japanese tea lounge.   

Spa and Wellness at Four Seasons

Designated as the wellness zone, the 36th floor of the Hotel will include a spa with five treatment rooms, and sauna.  Both the 16 metre (952 foot) indoor pool and fully-equipped fitness centre will offer inspiring views to enhance one’s workout routines.  A key part of the wellness offering will be a series of public and private ofuro (Japanese baths) in the ryokan tradition.
