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!

“ Incredible experience and tour guide ”

This was such a great way to experience Kobe and Hideo really did an excellent job, in addition to being friendly and easy to spend a whole day with. His knowledge of the area is superb and he speaks very good English. He really took care of us and even had printed information ready for us as well as a whole day planned that took us to many interesting places in and around Kobe. He was very knowledgeable of all these places and took very good care of us. He even booked us a local restaurant to try for a nice evening dinner. I would highly recommend any tour with Hideo.

Hideo:

Hi Sean I'm very happy to receive your message. I'm sure you enjoyed honeymoon tour; especially Kobe Bay Cruise and Kobe Beef (Xmas special course.) I wish you much happiness and success in the future. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Sean. Best HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Osaka and kyoto tour ”

The two days tour was really an amazing experience. We had a fantastic tour with our tour guide Hideo. He has a very good knowledge about all the places that we visited and showed us some pictures. He was able to answer all my queries about these places and his English was easy to understand compared to my previous guide. We used the public transportation which I really liked and which we had never used before in my previous visit. The overall price for these tours were reasonable and the payment was easy and simple. We also felt honoured to be the first Bruneian in his tour! Being a muslim traveller, he was able to arrange lunch and dinner for us in halal restaurants. He was also helptful and sympathetic to my husband since he has an injury to his leg. So there was one time of the tour th... read more

“ Well Organized ”

Hideo was on time meeting us at our cruise ship. He had already bought our train tickets so we didn't waste time. He had copies of a schedule and a map for our day with him. We saw everything we wanted to see and he explained it all well. We enjoyed the place he took us for lunch. At times I had a little difficulty understanding him, but I asked questions and he clarified what he said.

Hideo:

Hi Sandra I'm very happy to receive your review. I'm sure you enjoyed Hiroshima tour. I hope to see you again. Thank you. Best HIDEo YOSHIda
