G-20 summit Osaka

Business before pleasure: G-20 meeting to crimp Osaka tourism

Tight security means headaches for visitors trying to see the sights

The Osaka Castle tour is one of the most popular attractions in the city.

OSAKA -- Tourists planning a visit to the city of Osaka later this month could see their itineraries disrupted as police tighten security for a Group of 20 summit that will bring foreign leaders to the bustling commercial hub in western Japan.

Leaders from 37 nations, regions and international organizations, including U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, will gather in the nation's third most populous city -- after Tokyo and Yokohama -- on June 28 and 29, making the summit one of the largest conferences ever held in Japan.
