This tour is highly recommended for those who would like to explore the spiritual side of Osaka.

What to Expect

You can explore the spiritual side of Osaka like Mt. Koya. This tour includes visiting an old temple called Hozanji-temple built on a sacred mountain called Mt. Ikoma, Hiraoka shrine which enshrines the deity of fortune telling, a shopping street lined with many fortune telling stores and a local Shinto shrine enshrines two main deities related to the Japanese mythology.
On Mt.Ikoma, there is a temple called Hozanji, literally meaning a temple filled with many treasures, and this temple is said to bring you prosperity if you make your own specific prayer in the main building of this temple. This is a kind of spiritual benefit gained in this world. So if you have any specific prayer in your life, I recommend that you visit this temple with the explanation of me to make your dreams come true.
In addition to visiting spiritual side of Osaka, you can enjoy listening to Japanese folk music if requested. My shamisen tunes will lead you to a nostalgic, and energetic world so you can have an unforgettably unique experience.

Hi, my name is Ryota Usami. I’m a national tour guide who can also play the shamisen, a traditional Japanese musical instrument. If you would like to listen to my shamisen playing during a tour, please let me know. My shamisen tunes will lead you to a nostalgic, and energetic world so you can have an unforgettably unique experience. I studied hard to be a tour guide because getting a tour guide certification is a kind of hard nut to crack. I’m still in the process of being a super guide, but I assure you that I’ll take you to breathtaking sightseeing spots at a reasonable price.
The service I offer is as follows. I’ll pick you up at the lobby of your accommodation or meet up with you wherever you’d like to at 9:00 am. The starting time is also changeable. From there I’ll take you around Japan including some hidden sightseeing spots and places you would like to go to.
We mainly use subways and public transportation to get there. My transportation fees during the tour are not included in the price. While having lunch, I’ll give you many travel tips, so let’s enjoy eating and talking. I’ll answer almost all questions, but since I’m not a Buddha, I don’t know everything. Thank you. read more
