Dotombori

 

If you're traveling to Osaka, don't miss Dotombori!  Hundreds of eateries of the local foods attract people.  You can not only enjoy eating but also looking at the various restaurant signs. 

 

Here, for example, is a crab restaurant.  The decoration tells you in a direct way what kind of restaurant it is.

 Bingo, it's a sushi bar, sticking out a tuna sushi to you!

 This one on the right is a ramen (Chinese noodles) restaurant.  We often use an image of a dragon to illustrate Chinese food and that's why this restaurant chose a dragon design.

“ Fantastic time with Mari ”

I couldn't have paid for a better guide. I feel like I have a friend in Japan. Mari was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. She was nice, friendly and attended to our every need. She even helped us at a local pharmacy since all three of my children needed a decongestant. While having a guide is not cheap, making good use of your time is immeasurable. We saw everything on our wish l...

“ Mari was a joy to work with! ”

Excellent
2 weeks ago Traveler: Joan -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari helped us to design the day we wanted as an introduction to Osaka. She even helped us make the transportation arrangements to Toba (Mikimoto Pearl Island) that we had been unable to make. Because the weather was challenging as was the closure of the Sky Building due to typhoon repairs, she communicated with us frequently about re-designing our tour. We also made adjustments on the day of t...

“ Fabulous Day! ”

Excellent

We spent a day with Mari touring the sites of Kyoto. She was very professional, starting with a quick reply once we booked, she was very knowledgeable about the history of the places we went, and she was also very nice. When my phone died unexpectedly, she even went out of her way to help me find a charger. She also helped me learn to navigate the public transportation system so I could get around...

“ One day tour of Kyoto ”

Very Good
1 month ago Traveler: Reenu -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari was excellent! She was timely and organized and did her best to show us all the sites in Kyoto in one day (9 hours). She was excellent with her communication and provided insight into the sites we were visiting. I really liked the fact that she wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time. The only thing I would recommend for anyone traveling is perhaps limit the number of sites you ar...

She speaks excellent English and is very personable, which is important when you are spending all day with your guide. She knows the area and can tai...

“ Great Day in Osaka with Mari ”

Excellent
2 months ago Traveler: John -   Tour Guide: Mari

We spent a great day in Osaka with Mari who was very punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Mari gave us a good introduction to the city and as we are here for a few days, have gone back and spent more time in some of the places, such as Namba. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kushikatsu lunch as suggested by Mari. Would definitely recommend Mari.
