Overview

The Osaka city is culturally divided in two areas, namely north side and south side of the region. The southern side of the region reminds people of fresh food and comedy theaters and culture of a long tradition. By joining the tour you can enjoy the old Asian Tastes combined with the passionate young people trying to become the center of the whole culture of Japan.

What to Expect

This is the Japanese Broadway, so to speak, in the sense that it represents the mixture of good food and comedy theaters and some other theatrical values.
By visiting there you can enjoy the multi-national atmosphere mainly based on the asian feeling that dominates the street. It gives the sense that you would feel as if you were in a wonder land just like a festival which never ends all year round. The river running from east to west stands for the passing time which connects old and new aspects of life and you can enjoy being part of it.

Highlights

  • You may optionally have sweet beans soup at Hozenji-Yokocho, which costs about $8 per person.
  • You can take a photo of yourself or of your group with the large advertisement of the confectionery company Glico in the background.

Important

In some restaurants they will serve their food a little bit too spicy for some people. So I would recommend you to choose from Japanese egg based pizza, Japanese egg dumplings, Crab dishes or Sushi bars.

“ Interesting day with Yuki. Highly recommend. ”

We went around Osaka on a half day tour with Yuki, and it was a very interesting and engaging tour. Yuki was able to explain the city, history and interesting facts about food, Osaka to us. Kids had fun! From the hotel, we went to Umeda, Osaka Castle, walked around Dotonburi/Namba for a bit. Yuki also recommend a very good restaurant for Okonomiyaki. It was a good day for us! and will definitely do this with Yuki when we are back in town.

“ Our First Evening in Osaka Dotonbori Experience ”

Nobuyuki was a really good tour guide. This was supposed to be a foodie tour and we enjoyed our dinner eating Osaka’s famous okonomiyaki. We walked around Dotonburi enjoying its sights. Nobuyuki knew a lot about history. We enjoyed our evening with him. Before our tour, Nobuyuki made sure he knew where to bring us to. We had pre tour email exchanges so he knew our preferences. Great experience.

“ Not what we had hoped for. ”

Apart from being met at the port & delivered safely to the airport, the day was very disappointing. We did not visit the famous castle, had great difficulty in keeping up with our guide & felt it was a very expensive & unsatisfying exercise.

“ Kyoto, Nara & Osaka ”

We spent 4.5 days with Nobuyuki seeing many of the sites in Kyoto, Nara & Osaka. Nobuyuki was a great guide, full of interesting historical insights, and always ready for a joke or good laugh. He speaks English well and most importantly varies the things that you are going to see or do so that you don't get bored or tired. Highly recommended.
