I'd like to recommed you the following sightseeing spot in Osaka if you are planning to go round in the city.

[ Osaka Castle ]

Best Selection of Osaka Sightseeing Spots (1) Osaka Castle

The castle is the most popular spot as a symbol of Osaka and must-see sightseeing spot,originally built about 400 years ago by Toyotomi Hideyoshi,then-powerful ruler of Japan.

Unfortunately the original one was burned down to the ground by war and the present main tower was built in 20th century, financed by donations from the citizens of Osaka.

The castle features many large and shining golden ornaments such as imaginary sea creature on the rooftop and golden tea room inside and other cultural property.

I missed the chance to wear sumurai armor and battle helmets this time but I will try them to become a samurai military lord at my next visit.

One of the major attraction of the castle is excellectlly built-up huge stone walls surrounding it,consisting of about 40000 rocks.   I wonder how many people were involved in the constructon ? !

Kenji was a great tour guide. He explained the history and culture of Osaka to us and was able to amend the tour where and when needed. Kenji also helped us to sort out our JR pass for our travel in Japan and was a great help. Kenji took us to this awesome Sushi train restaurant where no one spoke English so we would not have been able to go if it was not for Kenji. Overall a great experience! Tha...

We booked trip with Kenji for half a day when our cruise ship arrived in Kobe. I initially asked Kenji for a tour to Nara but at the last minute we decided that we would rather see Himeji Castle. I asked him to change itinerary at the last minute. He was very positive about the change and suggested to go to see additionally Engyoji-temple on Mt. Shoshazan that I did not even know about. Our trip w...

We hired Triple Lights and Kenji to meet us at the port in Kobe. He was there when we arrived and guided us through the day of visiting Temples and Shrines. He handed us a detailed schedule for the day, and it worked out exactly as he had described, including finding a restaurant to meet my dietary needs. His English is very good and he is very pleasant.

“ Osaka in A Day ”

Excellent
7 months ago Traveler: Jonathan -   Tour Guide: Kenji

Kenji-san was good fun, and we spent a very comprehensive day with him as our guide in Osaka. As Japan was experiencing a heatwave, we had to make extra pit stops for resting and hydrating so that stretched the day a little more than the agreed hours but Kenji-san was relaxed about it and made us feel easy and unpressurised by the slight delay. All in all, a very good overview of Osaka in one da...
