The Umeda District of Osaka

by Nobuyuki

Osaka is famous for having two parts of north and south, namely Umeda District and Nanba District.    Umeda District is known for having several office buildings and high Sky Building and Grand Front which is located 7 minutes away from that on foot.


Nanba District, on the other hand, is known for old streets and shopping area.    Recently we came to see the new Abeno Harukas having been built in Tennoji which is further on the south side of that area.       And Shitennoji or the oldest temple in Japan is close to the Abeno Harukas in Tennoji.


Various  tastes and aspects can be appreciated in Osaka, and that is what we are proud of  in showing you this area.

“ Excellent day in a Tokyo with Nobuyuki ”

2 months ago Traveler: Sasha -   Tour Guide: Nobuyuki

We had a great time with Nobuyuki ( “ Yuki”) in Kyoto. Due to the logistics, we had 2 days in Kyoto on our own before the tour and I had reached out to Yuki before we left to get his recommendations on what to do so that we do not waste any time. Yuki was very prompt in his emails and provided me with the suggested itinerary for the 2 days. We followed his suggestions, saw a lot on our own( or s...

“ Our First Evening in Osaka Dotonbori Experience ”

6 months ago Traveler: Grace -   Tour Guide: Nobuyuki

Nobuyuki was a really good tour guide. This was supposed to be a foodie tour and we enjoyed our dinner eating Osaka’s famous okonomiyaki. We walked around Dotonburi enjoying its sights. Nobuyuki knew a lot about history. We enjoyed our evening with him. Before our tour, Nobuyuki made sure he knew where to bring us to. We had pre tour email exchanges so he knew our preferences. Great experience.

“ Not what we had hoped for. ”

1 year ago Traveler: Deirdre -   Tour Guide: Nobuyuki

Apart from being met at the port & delivered safely to the airport, the day was very disappointing. We did not visit the famous castle, had great difficulty in keeping up with our guide & felt it was a very expensive & unsatisfying exercise.

“ Kyoto, Nara & Osaka ”

1 year ago Traveler: Hugh -   Tour Guide: Nobuyuki

We spent 4.5 days with Nobuyuki seeing many of the sites in Kyoto, Nara & Osaka. Nobuyuki was a great guide, full of interesting historical insights, and always ready for a joke or good laugh. He speaks English well and most importantly varies the things that you are going to see or do so that you don't get bored or tired. Highly recommended.

Nobuyuki provided an excellent tour of Osaka. He was very obliging and knowledgable.

Once sorted, he took us to so many places including Osakajo Castle and we experienced a traditional lunch of Okonomiyaki. We had a great day ...
