What to Expect

In this tour we'll visit 5 popular sightseeing spots in Osaka. If you like to visit other places, please feel free to let me know.

Following is a list of the sights I recommend:

1.Osaka-jo Castle
It's a symbol of Osaka and the most visited sight by tourists. Inside the castle there is a museum that tells you all about Osaka-jo and its history. We will do a lot of walking; so please be ready!

2.Doguya-suji Shopping Arcade
An Arcade filled with stores of Japanese cooking tools for professional chefs and of traditional decoration items. If you like, you can try food sample making for souvenirs at one of the stores. (Food sample making costs 1,000-2,000 JPY.)

3. Dotombori
It's a must spot for tourists. Dotombori is a foodies' paradise along the canal. Let's stroll around looking at a decorative signboard that each restaurant has. At your request, we can enjoy a 20 minute Tombori River Cruise. We will have lunch at a cook-it-yourself Okonomiyaki restaurant. Okonomiyaki is a local food like an unsweetened pancake with chopped vegetables, meat and seafood with a special kind of sauce on top. Also, we'll visit a good old Hozenji-yokocho street.

4. Nakanoshima or Kuromon Ichiba Market
We can either visit Nakanoshima or Kuromon Ichiba Market at your choice.
Nakanoshima is an island sandwiched by two rivers. There is a peaceful park where the locals come and relax. We'll visit neoclassical Osaka Central Public Hall and Osaka Nakanoshima Prefectural Library, both being important cultural properties.
Kuromon Ichiba Market is a very popular tourist spot today. The market has a history of 180 years, and there are about 170 stores along the narrow streets.
It is always crowded with people serching for fresh seafood(often times you can eat at the spot.) vegetables, and fruit.

5. Umeda Sky Building
It's one of the landmarks of Osaka. The building has a unique structure, and is listed as one of the 20 outstanding architectures of the world by Times magazine.
It's 173 meters high from the ground; on top of the building it has an open observation deck called sky garden.
