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!

Hideo is a great guide. His English is good and he knows the site and sites well. He also moves quickly so you get to see a lot. Using trains and buses you also get a feel for the city. We walked about 10 mines during the day but with the stops etc. it did not feel difficult. I was very pleased with Hideo.
We love Mr Hideo so much. We are family of 12 and he was able to managed us very well with his prepared tour itinerary. He picked us up from our apartment and guide us all the way through the scenic spots using local trains. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Mr Hideo :)
We had two separate tours with Hideo. One for a full day to Osaka and another to Hiroshima. Hideo is very thorough in his planning and well-organized. He plans everything in detail but at the same time is very flexible according to our interests. He gave us good advice and ideas while proposing the itinerary. He is punctual and knows the cities well. He is also humble and patient and very hardworking. Thank you Hideo for bringing us around!
Hideo is a pleasant man, very knowledgeable as you would expect of a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay every memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 3 days 2 nights there, so we decided to make the most of the with Hideo. We'll be back to Japan again and we'll be sure to book with Hideo once more!
We spent 5 enjoyable days with Hideo in Osaka and Kyoto. He was well organised, puntual, patient and flexible with our plans. He was particularly kind to assist us in any way we required, and was a pleasure to get to know during our stay in these two cities. A big thank you, again!
