What to Expect


Osaka is a foodie-friendly place where you can enjoy all kinds of amazing (and cheap) food. In this tour, you get try those delicious specialities such as Takoyaki, Kushi-katsu, Okonomiyaki and so on. Also you will not miss the famous Osaka castle, where you get to view the city from the top floor of the castle, feeling like a shogun back in the old days.

Highlights

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.

“ Enjoyable and educational ”

We had so much fun with our tour guide Hiroshi. Aside that he speaks good english, he emits good aura to us and make us feel we are not in a foreign country. He is honest, amiable, jolly, punctual; energetic (despite his age), and with a good sense of humor. He goes out of his way to accommodate all possible tourists spots we can see despite time constraint. He even fetches us from the hotel to avoid getting lost. He explains well the heritage and history of a particular place which makes it more interesting to us even if we are so consumed of walking. I will definitely get Hiroshi again the next time we go back to Osaka. You get your money's worth for the service of Hiroshi.

“ Kyoto at the start of fall. ”

Toichi picked us up in our Namba hotel at 10 am & took a train ride to Kyoto. I'm really glad we hired him because unlike our 1st trip to Kyoto 2015, we kind of wandered around the city on our own & didn't see much. Aside from his surprisingly great english skills being western educated, knowledge of Japan's history, both friendly & accomodating; with Toichi, we got to see the major attractions like the Inari Shrine, Hojo Rock Garden, Isuien Garden, experienced a traditional Kyoto lunch, saw the ongoing Yayaoi Kusama art exhibit, Gion-geisha town, Imperial Palace and at 4 pm headed off to Bamboo Grove in Arashimaya. Toichi made sure to include my preference for landscapes & art. The cab rides in between sites in Kyoto allowed us to cover much. We headed back to Namba by train at 6pm with a more concrete understanding of Kyoto's importance in Japan's history, aside of course from all the quaint & beautiful visuals unique to Kyoto.

“ Great night out - getting close to people ”

Turned out to be an excellent idea to spend the evening with someone who knows the whereabouts of the city. Great "insider"-food, dishes a foreigner would not even consider to taste since he has no clue that they exist - down to earth dishes and thanks to the local guide immediate interaction with local guests, great fun, lovely people. Experience continued in a Sake Bar ...--> absolute take advantage of someone who knows the backstreets and can bring you closer to every day Japanese live.

“ A great way to experience Osaka in the evening. ”

This was a fun tour - relaxing and got to see the little bars and restaurants - enjoying the local sake and delicious food, followed by the bright lights of Dotonbori. Seiko explained many features of the culture in Osaka which was very interesting. Seiko was a great guide - thoroughly recommend this tour with Seiko especially if you feel like a fun night out.
