visit must-see places with a licensed guide
I will take you on an around 7 hour tour of the city of Osaka on foot and using the public transportation system, mainly the subway. The meeting place is your hotel in Osaka city, JR Shin-Osaka Station or the Osaka cruise ship terminal.
Osaka Castle is a must when you visit Osaka. It is magnificent. The Dotombori district is the liveliest entertainment district.
We can also visit a local shopping arcade ( not on Sundays), and Umeda Sky Building known as Floating Garden.
In this tour, you'll enjoy a mixture of old and new aspects of Osaka.
I love to eat. Please let me know if there is anything you'd like to eat while you're in Osaka.
As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet you. Let me arrange a memorable visit.
