3. Namihaya Bridge

Namihaya Bridge is the famous bridge in Osaka. This bridge is called Betafumi Bridge. Betafumi means “Pedal to the medal slope“. We can see night view in Nanko from the bridge.

I recommend to access this bridge by car or rental bike, because this bridge is 30-minutes walk from the Osakako station.

For a trip to Japan


You can use Internet by eSIM in Japan without changing SIM. An eSIM is an industry-standard digital SIM that allows you to activate a cellular plan from your carrier without having to use a physical SIM. You can install eight or more eSIMs on an iPhone and use two phone numbers at the same time.

Recommend eSIM is below.


You cannnot use Uber in Japan. Go is local taxi app instead of Uber.
