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, shamisen experience, 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. I will play about 6 tunes on the shamisen, a traditional Japanese musical instrument. My shamisen tunes will lead you to a nostalgic, and energetic world so you can have an unforgettably unique experience.
