except Tuesday because Osaka Museum of Housing and Living is closed.
First I would like to take you to the 2.6 km long Tenjinbashisuji shopping street. It's the longest shopping street in Japan. I recommend you visit the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living at Tenjinbashisuji sixth street. You can see the reproductions of long houses facing the street, goods for sale, and general household items. You can try wear a yukata or a light cotton kimono for 200 yen per person.
Why don't you enjoy wearing a light cotton kimono and take pictures?
Osaka Tenmangu Shrine is also located along the street. The Osaka Tenjin Festival, one of the three major festivals in Japan, starts from this shrine.
You can also enjoy so many restaurants and reasonably priced shops on this street. You can enjoy sushi or udon noodles for lunch.
Osaka is known as a city of waterways, same as the lagoon city of Venice in Italy. Now the waterfront is used for leisure and pleasure. There are restaurants, cafe, and modern architectures in and around Nakanoshima or a small island between Dojima river and Tosabori river. The bridges of Osaka are called "the 808 bridges of Naniwa."
The Osaka branch office of the Bank of Japan that was built in 1903 and the Osaka City Hall that was built in 1986 are located near Yodoyabashi (bridge).
Osaka Central Public Hall (the former Oskaka Nakanoshima Public Hall) is near Umedankibashi (bridge). This red brick building was built in 1918 and is now a symbol of Nakanoshima.
The Museum of Oriental Ceramics is near Hokonagashibashi (bridge). It was built in 1982. The museum was established by Osaka city to commemorate the donations of the world-famous "Ataka Collection" by the 21 companies of the Sumitomo Group. The Ataka Collection comprises mostly of Chinese and Korean ceramics, Japanese ceramics and the like.
The Osaka Securities Exchange is near Naniwabashi (bridge), which is the most popular bridge in Osaka because of the statues of lions on both ends of the bridge.
You can enjoy the 3,700 roses of 310 varieties at the rose garden in May or October, not only in Nakanoshima park but also on the bank of both rivers.
Tenjinbashi (bridge) is widely known as the starting point for boats cruise when Tenjin Festival is held.
From Tenmabashi bridge you can get to Osaka Castle in about 15 minutes.
If you are particularly interested in the Japanese architecture of the early 1900's or just walking around enjoying the gentle breeze from rivers, I'm sure you'll enjoy walking around Nakanoshima.

We found Hideo-san as a very organised, patient and wonderful human being. We're travelling with an infant and a 3yr old and to have someone like Hideo as tour guide helps you have a peace of mind during the entire trip. From the time we booked him through TripleLights, he was constantly in touch in finalising the trip itinerary and assisting with our tour requirements. He organised a private car for our day-trip in Hiroshima and Miyajima. Reasonable price and a big car! He got in touch a week before and assisted with JR train details (for our travel from Kyoto to Hiroshima to Kyoto) for our seat reservations. He didnt have to but it was very helpful. Picked us at the Hiroshima station and had a clear itinerary of our day-trip. Never rushing and was very soft spoken (even as we're behind the schedule at times!). Took a lot of photos for us with a sincere smile. Very knowledgable guide, he is, who seems to do a lot of preparatory work about the places of interest and for the needs of his clients. Took us to a fine dining family restaurant in Hiroshima that had a great ambience and food. On our return to Hiroshima train station in car, he took efforts to find places for Kimono rentals in his mobile phone and plotted everything in a local map (Kyoto) to make things easier for us. Delighting customer service! He considerateness and care didn't stop there - he got down at Shin-Kobe station to assist us with transfer of train to Kyoto (even though he could have travelled straight to Osaka). It was a heartening surprise for us! Our day trip to Hiroshima was more than a experience to the places of interest because of our time with Hideo-San. We will highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great guide!
He did a great job of getting us around quickly via the trains to our sights we wanted to see. He was very quiet but very efficient. There was a lot of walking, but we did ok. He took us to an extra site we didn't even know about , the bulletin train museum. It was great. !!!
We engaged Hideo to travel with us for 9 days to Hiroshima, Matsue, Nagano, Matsumoto, Takayama, Kanazawa and Toyama and nearby, satellite areas. Hideo's preplanning and travel scheduling was highly professional. He was attentive and accommodating to all our requests, making the experiences special. His knowledge of all things Japan was excellent, answering all our questions thoughtfully. We left the whole itinerary planning to Hideo and we were most happy with the total outcome. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the mountains along the snow covered Alpine Way at the end of our visit. Many thanks Hideo and best wishes Peter & Ann Jarman
We had Hideo as our guide on 11 April 2017 for our trip to Yoshino. He was punctual to pick us up from our hotel, organized - presented us with the itinerary and informative. Yoshino - nice place for cherry blossom viewing and walking. You get to see nice views as well as street food and souvenirs. Hideo is very helpful, he brought us to buy our Shinkansen ticket from Kyoto to Tokyo. Without his help, we might take a long to time to figure out where to buy the tickets. He also brought us to eat Okonomiyaki, showed us around Dotonbori and brought us to the shops we wanted to shop. Thank you, Hideo! We enjoyed ourselves very much.
Very energetic; knows history of interesting places very well
