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.

Hideo was very organized and insightful. He had an itinerary laid out for us and made all our traveling easy. He was knowledgeable about all the places we went and a very nice person. When we come back to Japan, we will tour with Hideo again! Thanks Hideo!!!
This is the first time we are visiting Japan on holidays and we have decided to use TripleLights, also for the first time, for the above itineraries. Having chosen Hideo who have done amazingly well to guide our trips, we are satisfied with his recommendations although the rains in Kyoto somehow dampen things a bit. TQ Hideo.
We have our tour with Mr Hideo, he is so helpful and flexible to cater for our request, he took extra mile to arrange for our train tickets and patience with answering our questions. We will surely hire him again on our next visit. P.s. Mr Hideo wish you good health and happy new year
Wishing to visit Kyoto in depth in the short time we had, we disembarked the ship we are sailing in in Kobe and travelled to Kyoto by Shinkansen, and spent the night there, rejoining our cruise the day after. Hideo picked us up in Kobe and was with us both days. Thanks to him, we saw many sights, using both taxis and public transport, and made it back to the ship with ample time. Hideo is very patient, punctual and knowledgeable and we had two wonderful days with him in this lovely city. Whilst we never felt hurried, we managed to see everything we had planned in advance, with his great help and suggestions, and although we probably just scratched the surface of this great city, we could never have done it without him.
Main purpose was to try the Kobe beef. We went to one of the oldest sake brewery in Japan. There was a sake brewery museum about the history of the brewery which was very interesting. The good sake there are very affordable and for foreigners, tax-free is processed there too. Animal Kingdom was a good place to spend some time especially for family with kids. We had Kobe beef at two places - Mouriya which we chose from recommendation for lunch and Kagura as recommended by Hideo-san. Kagura is a lot more expensive- guess you pay for the teppanyaki showmanship. We didn't have much time for anything else.
Kyoto was the ancient capital of Japan from 794 over one thousand years.
I would like to introduce you Kinkakuji Temple, Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple and Gion Corner.
I take you to Osaka Castle, Dotombori, Sginsekai and Shinsaibashi Shopping Street. In Osaka you can have Osaka local food such as Okoniomiyaki, Takoyaki, and Kushikatsu. Dotombori is popularly known as "kuidaore", or "eating and drinking until you
