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 west to east stands for the passing time which connects old and new aspects of life and you can enjoy being part of it.


What‘s included

Guide fee, hotel pick-up

What‘s not included

Transportation fee (you and guide), lunch, dinner

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will the transportation fee cost per person besides the guiding fee?

It will cost less than $10 if you come from your hotel in the Osaka city starting your tour with me.

How much will lunch or dinner cost per person?

It will be about $30. If you want to have Crab dish for lunch it will be $45 or so. However, if you order Okonomiyaki or Japanese egg based-Pizza with pork and shrimp and so on it will cost about $25 per person.

“ visited aquarium,osaka jo castle,japenese traditional dresses,tempozan,umeda grand fort etc etc ”

Mr.Nobuyuki was such a caring tour guide who is ready to explain each and every places we visited in and around Osaka.He speaks English very well and he is very smart too. We visited aquarium,Osaka Jo castle,place where I can wear traditional dresses for photography, tempozan market, umeda grand fort,etc etc....we had typical Japanese food and Coffee too...He is wonderful tour guide I have ever come across in my life...Thank you Nobuyuki and Triple lights.com :)

Nobuyuki:
Thank you very much for your comment and review of our trip in Osaka. I think you could feel the traditional atmosphere of Dotonbori street full of many shops and typical Japanese restaurants and the conspicuous contrast between the skyscraper seen in the Osaka Business Park and Osakajo Castle. The Japanese clothes you wore near Honamchi station were beautiful and would fit well. I hope your tour this time will last as a good memory with you and you would like to come back again. Thank you so much.

“ 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.

Nobuyuki:
Hello. Thank you for your comment. I will take your advice into my future improvement. Best regards, Nobuyuki

“ 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.

Nobuyuki:
Thank you very much for your comment, Hugh. I really enjoyed your company and hope to see you again somewhere in the world, possibly in Europe or in Japan again. I hope you will have spent the rest of your tour days safe and with much satisfaction. I wish many happy days to both of you. Thank you again. Nobuyuki

“ Osaka Tour with Osakajo Castle ”

Nobuyuki met us promptly at our hotel and guided us on a tour of Osaka highlights as listed, with informative commentary reflective of his knowledge and passion for the culture and history of the city. We highly recommend Nobuyuki.

Nobuyuki:
Dear Randie and Sandie Thank you very much for your comment on my tour. I am glad you liked every street I showed you during our trip. In addition to that you were very interested in historical and cultural sides of the Osaka city and how the Japanese are living based on the traditional customs and food and attraction, etc. I hope someday we will meet again somewhere in the world and I try to be always smarter. Thank you again. Best regards, Nobuyuki

“ Tour of Osaka ”

Nobuyuki provided an excellent tour of Osaka. He was very obliging and knowledgable. We arrived at Kobe by ship and Nobuyuki met us at the port and assisted us with taxis and train to Osaka where he then helped us store our luggage and exchange our JR pass. Once sorted, he took us to so many places including Osakajo Castle and we experienced a traditional lunch of Okonomiyaki. We had a great day and at the end of the tour, Nobuyuki made sure we returned to Osaka station and were in the right place for our train. His assistance with negotiating the train system & tickets, etc certainly helped us in the next few days when we were travelling on our own.

Nobuyuki:
I appreciate so much your having written the review on my tour. After much walking we could arrive and see the good places and after a little bit of waiting we could have a good lunch at Dotonbori. I hope we had a precious time together and that this experience will lead to another visit by you to our region of Japan. Thank you again and I wish you good holidays.
