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.
