Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi Hidetoshi in 1583. However, it was destroyed in a fire at the same time as Toyotomi Hidetoshi’s death. It was later rebuilt before it was again destroyed by fire in 1665. The modern Osaka Castle was rebuilt using contributions from local citizens after an appeal was made by the then-mayor of Osaka.

A takoyaki theme park located in Dotombori, the town of kuidaore. Enjoy sampling true takoyaki, watch them being made by the pros and even make them yourself. Also popular is making wax samples of takoyaki.

A shopping street that packs in kitchenware stores for the pros that support the culinary treasure house that is Osaka. It is said that the long history of Sennichimae Doguyasuji began in 1882. In addition to kitchenware, all items associated with dining including bowls and plastic food models are amassed here, and there are also plenty of restaurants.

Kuromon Ichiba market

Kuromon Ichiba Market, is a very popular for its variation of food you can try, and is known as "Gastronome" and "Osaka' s Kitchen".

The Umeda landmark, Umeda Sky Building, is a tall skyscraper which is the focus of attention from foreign tourists. The Floating Garden at 173 m up is a thrilling spot.

“ Attentive and helpful ”

Zumi-San was very helpful. We had a little confusion as to the area of the meeting place but once we had it sorted out, Zumi-san was the perfect aide. He helped us with our luggage cart and even guided us when we got our rail pass. We also hired Zuni-San for our shuttle to back to the airport and everything went smoothly. It helped that Zumi-San could speak English and was able to understand our needs. He also had great recommendations on places to go for sightseeing and places to eat. A perfect driver and guide.

“ Osaka Tour ”

Unfortunately, I got sick on the day of the tour. But I talked to my group and asked about Ms Mari. They told me that Ms Mari is so kind, came on time and spoke softly. She was so fast in walking as per my group! But they managed to follow her. She explained every detail to them. Two thumbs up!

Mari was excellent in both the planning and the tour itself. She was great in corresponding with me on the decisions of how to plan the day. She was so great that we booked a second tour with her based upon the planning of the first. The tour was perfectly executed and we maintained the schedule. Mari is such a pleasant person it was a joy to tour with her.
