I will visit Osaka for 6 days in August.
Are there any bg meetups at Umeda on Aug 6 (Sunday)?
Btw, I know there are two firework shows on Aug 5. I can't decide if I should go to see hanabi at Osaka or the other one at Kobe. Both are on same day & roughly at same time. Which one is more accessible & easier to find a good place to watch hanabi?

Not really, sorry. I'll be watching the Osaka fireworks with my family from the rooftop of our recently purchased house, but we're too far away and insufficiently high for it to be considered a good vantage point. Never been to see the Kobe fireworks.

I haven't been to the Kobe one either. However the one in Osaka isn't so hard to get to from Umeda. If you want to see it close up it's near Fukushima station. Bit of a treck and it's humid! But nice. Another idea is to try to see it from a tall building like the Umeda Skybuilding. Observatory level tickets will cost more than usual, though, and may sell out.

Not sure how the Kobe fireworks are but I'm sure they're nice. If you go there it gives you a nice excuse to spend the day in Kobe. It's no far at all from Umeda.
