Osaka Highlight Tour
Osaka is one of the biggest cities in Japan.
For a long time, Osaka has been the center of trade and commerce.
To be sure, there are fewer historical sites unlike Kyoto or Nara, but it has still many attractions to entertain everybody. People are very friendly, hospitable, and delightful.
You may see a different Japan after having visited Tokyo.
Food is by far, excellent.
On this trip you visit two contrasting places: a dynamic, exciting Osaka and
a quiet, relaxing Osaka.
First we visit Osaka castle.
Then we go to Kuromon Market in the downtown area.
After lunch we go to a mountain, where a completely different Osaka exists.
We climb up to a temple by cable car.
On the mountainside is Hozanji Temple.
Tourists seldom visit this place.
What you see in your eyes is a different face of Osaka.
Don't you want to enjoy tea ceremony here?
Our last destination is Dotombori Street, the symbol of Osaka.
There are many other attractive places in Osaka.
I'll make a customized tour according to your wishes.
