Here’s what you need to know if you’re visiting Osaka soon!

The hotel has a signature restaurant, Lokal House, which serves Japanese cuisine with Western influence. Other amenities include a bar, cafe, 24-hour gym, fitness room, and meeting and evening spaces.
“The opening of voco Osaka Central marks a bold new era of premium hotel experiences in Japan,” said Abhijay Sandilya, CEO of IHG ANA Hotels Group.
Sandilya also highlighted IHG’s rapid expansion in Japan. IHG has nearly 4 dozen hotels open in Japan, with another 8 in development. And this hasn’t been IHG’s only recent move in Japan. Just last week, IHG announced the opening of its fifth Hotel Indigo property in the country, Hotel Indigo Nagasaki Glover Street, scheduled to open for guests next year.
voco is one of IHG’s newest brands and falls under the chain’s premium umbrella, which includes some well-known names such as Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts and EVEN Hotels. Today, voco has 46 open hotels worldwide, with another 50 in the pipeline.
Booking voco Osaka Central With IHG One Rewards Points
You have several options if you’re interested in visiting Japan and using IHG One Rewards points.
And luckily, the voco Osaka Central is reasonably priced if you want to use IHG One Rewards points. The hotel is open for guests, and award nights start at just 27,000 points per night for dates this summer. Like many hotel chains nowadays, IHG no longer uses an award chart in favor of adopting variable award pricing. This means award nights can vary in cost depending on several factors, including demand and seasonality.
IHG offers 3 cards — 2 personal and 1 business credit card — all of which are issued by Chase.Hot Tip:
IHG is continuing its big expansion in Japan by opening a voco hotel in Osaka, a popular destination for travel. With relatively reasonable award rates, this is sure to be a sweet spot hotel for travelers looking to use and earn IHG One Rewards points!
