Osaka is a crown jewel of any travellers bucket list. It’s a place where food is art, cherries can come in liquid, blossom or alcoholic form and culture is around every corner. You’d be hard pressed to find a better place to travel, and you really can’t say you’ve experienced Japan until you’ve been. Of course, getting there is usually half the problem, but right now Emirates has amazing deals under £500 round trip. For one of the best economy cabins in the sky, that’s pretty great…
