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.

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 octopus dumplings, Crab dishes or Sushi bars.

“ Osaka tour ”

Nobuyuki is experienced, knowledgeable, punctual, and friendly which are the qualities of an excellent tour guide. Our group of four went to Tenjinbashisuji, Osaka Castle, Umeda Sky Building, and had an amazing kaiseki lunch which Nobuyuki arranged for us. Thanks Nobuyuki for giving us such unforgettable memories!

Nobuyuki:

Dear Mr. Colleen and Family I am very grateful to you for all the kindness you showed me through our journey. Even though I am a tour guide, It has been a very attractive and memorable journey to me also, which was a little bit challenging. Please forgive me if I was not fully considerate and attentive. I hope you will hold this tour with good memories and much care. And I wish someday I would serve you in some other places in Japan. With full devotion. Best regards, Nobuyuki

“ Excellent day in a Tokyo with Nobuyuki ”

We had a great time with Nobuyuki ( “ Yuki”) in Kyoto. Due to the logistics, we had 2 days in Kyoto on our own before the tour and I had reached out to Yuki before we left to get his recommendations on what to do so that we do not waste any time. Yuki was very prompt in his emails and provided me with the suggested itinerary for the 2 days. We followed his suggestions, saw a lot on our own( or so we thought!) and then had a fantastic day with him. Yuki took us to the places we would not know to go, was very attentive to our needs and requests, knows everything and structured the day iso we could go and see as much as possible. We felt we were everywhere and leant a lot. I highly recommend Yuki as your guide

Nobuyuki:

Thank you very much for you words on my tour with you in family. I hope we had an excellent time seeing almost every major spots of cultural values within one day. And I thank you again for putting up with me while we had to walk a little bit long distance along the alley leading to the last place. I hope you will have good vacations again and meet me somewhere back in this country again.

“ 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.

Nobuyuki:

Thank you very much for your review regarding the tour we went together on the Christmas time. I was glad to be in the Poke Mon center as the first spot to visit after we went out into the city of Osaka and it was good experience for me too. During our short trip around the Osaka city I think we could enjoy the old and new cultural values including some attractions for young people. Keep on watching Japan and visit us some other day. Have a nice trip again please.

“ 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.

Nobuyuki:

Thank you very much for your comment and message. I hope we could know the best sides of the Dotonbori area and enjoy the food there. I further pray for your safe and pleasant journey. Please visit other places too and have a lot of fun down the road. I really appreciate your kindness. Thank you again.

“ 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.
