Enjoy the best of old and modern Water Metropolis with a private guide
The biggest city in western Japan Osaka has a long history of 1, 500 years as the Aqua Metropolis.
Osaka is two-faced. Osaka could be divided into two. Namely, that is Kita meaning north centering on Umeda and Minami, south, on Namba. Minami has more Osaka air.
Gaudy sign boards such as neon-light advertisements of Glico, a confectionary manufacturer, and a huge moving crab are displayed.
Osaka has been considered the country's kitchen since ancient times. Speaking of Osaka food, they say that something flour-based representing tako-yaki, octopus dumpling and okonomi-yaki, a Japanese style pancake are the No. 1 association.
So let's try all the "city of Osaka Taste".

Hide was very friendly and informative, and he took use to all of the sights listed on the itinereary, but he will adjust the tour to your liking. We saw a lot in one day. Although he's is supposedly 69 years in age, we walked over 8 miles, and he did not seem to be tired. He hardly smiles if you' re taking his photo, but he will gladly take photos of the group for you. And he loves classic American music (from Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra to Neil Sakada, etc).
