What to Expect

I would like to introduce to you the northern area of Osaka, including the Umeda Sky Building, Osaka Station City and Grand Front Osaka.

The Umeda Sky Building with a height of 174 meters is the landmark of Umeda. The floating garden observatory on the roof allows you to see a 360 degree view of Osaka City. In 2013, around 250,000 foreign tourists visited the building because it was selected as one of "the top 20 buildings representing the world" in the London TIMES in 2008. Two forty-story buildings are connected at the top level.

Osaka is popularly known as a city of merchants and is largely divided into two commercial hotspots. One hotspot is Kita (North) town which is centered around JR Osaka Station. Recently five major department stores have entered a period of hard competition. The Osaka Station City has in it the JR Osaka Station and also department stores such as Mitsukoshi Isetan, Daimaru, and LUCUA.

Grand Front Osaka is a large complex facility with 4 buildings that opened on Apr. 26th 2013. It's very easy for people to visit Grand Front Osaka because it's directly connected to the Osaka Station City building on the second floor. You can eat Kindai tuna there, the tuna that Kinki University successfully "farmed" for the first time in the world.

Around Osaka Station City, there are two local department stores. One is the Hankyu Department Store with many specialty shops and the other is the Hanshin Department Store which is populary known for its "depa-chika" or the basement food floors. They have delicous foods of all kinds down there.

You enjoy eating, drinking and shopping on this tour!

“ Good tours ”

We had two Hideo tours in Kyoto and one in Osaka. Hideo was well prepared for the tours with maps, tickets and printed tour plants. He coomunicated with me prior to the tours and put together these tours based on my requests. He navigated through paublic transportation system very well. His english is not perfect and sometimes it was difficult to understand him, but we gor buy OK. We wanted local cultural experience and got it.

“ Very unconcerned ”

When we first me Hideo the first thing he did was ask for $64 for transport from his house .. I said no and he said ok Did not like that thought it was rude Wherever we want I felt he did not know where we were going He never gave info unless asked and several times did not know answer and never looked up in google as several other guides did I felt he was rude by constantly walking ahead of us and not seeming to care His English was not very good On a level of 1-10 I would give him a 2 I would not recommend him to anyone Trip to Nikko was great in spite of him I just can’t imagine how much better it could of been if we had a good guide like several of our other guides at triplelights
