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.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. 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." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more
