Overview

Let's walk along Tenjinbashisuji, the longest shopping street in Japan.
We should definitely check out the local shops and markets only the locals know about, that tourists may otherwise overlook. You have a chance to get to chat with the locals and explore the unique flavors at some of these street vendors such as plums, tofu, tea etc.

What to Expect

I'll show you the spots only the locals know about, that tourists may otherwise overlook, so that you'll have 100 times more fun than you walk along the street by yourselves.
You also might have some chance to get to chat with the local people on the street.

“ Funtastic Osaka ”

Tokie our guide was very nice, friendly, and accomodating. We had a great time in the Cup Noodles Museam, Osaka Castle and The Osaka Aquarium. The one day was short but enjoyable. Thank you Tokie!

“ Osaka Market Tour ”

Tokie was fantastic. She met us at our hotel, we caught the train to the markets and she pointed out different food produce along the way- we sampled what we felt like buying and learnt a lot about different cultural customs and foods. After our tour she even sent sake bar recommendations and places to go out should we ever return. I was quite sick on the day and Tokie was sensitive to this so she made sure to keep checking if I was alright and what I felt like I could handle!

“ Awesome flexibility & conversation ”

Tokie was the guide for my parents while I had to work in Japan. My parents' favorite day of the trip was with Tokie - she was very accommodating with their schedule, adjusted accordingly, and had a great conversation the whole time with them. Thank you so much, Tokie - looking forward to being able to join the tour next time I'm in town.
