What to Expect

I can assure you that you can enjoy Osaka Minami Tour.

First I take you to Namba Yasaka Shrine. Whatever you say, the most eye-catching thing at Yasaka Shrine in Osaka is a Giant Emaden in the shape of lion mask. I'm sure It's well worth seeing.

Next I take you to the gastronomic world of Osaka.

I show you Doguyasuji and Kuromon market.
Doguyasuji is the typical Japanese shopping arcade street for kitchen utensils. When someone tries to open restaurants or shops, he can come here to get all kinds of equipments such as plates, cooking knives, food samples, signboards and the like.
Furthermore at Kuromon market, or literally "black market", is one of the three major markets in Japan. The market is about 580 meters long with about 190 shops. You can buy fish, meat, vegetables, fruits and even kimono.
Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Popular foods are "Konamon" such as Okonomiyaki. or a Japanese-style pancake grilled on an iron plate, and Takoyaki, or a grilled dumpling with a piece of octopus in it. I would introduce you some stores.

You can enjoy shopping around Dotombori because there are popular shopping streets and department stores.

Lastly I take you to Shin-Sekai. It is a downtown with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. Tsutenkaku is the symbol tower of this area. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) with reasonable price. Billiken has been waiting fot you !! By the way the area was designed to model after some country. Do you know where it is ?

I'm looking forward to seeing you.
Thank you.

“ Very unconcerned ”

When we first me Hideo the first thing he did was ask for $64 for transport from his house .. I said no and he said ok Did not like that thought it was rude Wherever we want I felt he did not know where we were going He never gave info unless asked and several times did not know answer and never looked up in google as several other guides did I felt he was rude by constantly walking ahead of us and not seeming to care His English was not very good On a level of 1-10 I would give him a 2 I would not recommend him to anyone Trip to Nikko was great in spite of him I just can’t imagine how much better it could of been if we had a good guide like several of our other guides at triplelights

“ Well prepared , knowledgable, and charming guide! ”

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!

We really enjoyed our time with Hideo. He was very knowledgeable, took us to great places and got us back to our ship with time to spare. He took us to excellent restaurants so that we could try delicious local foods. I would definitely recommend him.
