Description: Open source travel guide to Takarazuka, featuring up-to-date information on attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, travel tips and more. Free and reliable advice written by Wikitravellers from around the globe.

The city is known for both its hot springs and its all-female Takarazuka Revue, both of which are now the main draw for visitors.

Most people who visit Takarazuka are domestic travellers, with the largest group being middle-aged people and the older crowd.

For manga fans, the Tezuka Osamu Manga Museum located here is a must-visit. The manga artist, most well known for creating the character Astro Boy, grew up in the city, watching the Takarazuka Revue as a boy.

Take the Hankyu Takarazuka Line from the Hankyu Umeda Station in Osaka (about 10 minutes by foot from Osaka Station). Takarazuka Station is at the end of the line, and the trip takes about 45 minutes. The Hankyu Takarazuka Station is the best station to go if you are planning to visit the Takarazuka Revue and Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum.

If you are not staying at a local hotel, take note of the last train times at both stations (usually at or around 1am), or you might find yourself with no transportation out of the city.
