  • Osaka Castle
  • Umeda Sky Building(Floating Garden Observatory)



Osaka castle was originally built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi who unified Japan for the first time in the end of 16th century and destoried by Tokugawa Ieyasu who was the first shogun in Tokugawa shogunate and he rebuilt Osaka castle in the begininng of 17the century.
Osaka castle was burned down many times and the present main tower is the reprica, However the original great stone walls,moat ,gate and a few guard towers are remained.
Umed sky building was built in 1993. The hight is 173meters. The building is famous for the unique form and it is one of the most attractive
landmarks in Osaka. I am sure that you can ejoy the beautiful scenery of Osaka from the top floor. read more

“ Nara/Osaka Visit ”

Akira was great. Due to dietary restrictions, we were a tricky group to work with. He was very flexible with the itinerary. We enjoyed Nara so much that we spent a majority of our time there. He was extremely knowledgeable about both cities. I would definitely recommend Akira to any group in need of a tour guide.

We liked him! He came on time and very patient to us especially to my 3 yr old son. We took a lot of pictures all the time, but he sees to it that we still manage the time to visit more places. He always managed to look for us! What also made him excellent is that he was so concerned about my son because we need to look for a nebulizer machine during the tour. Two thumbs up for Sir Akira!
