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".

A Recent Review of this tour

We definitely had a great time with Hide and enjoyed learning about the history of Osaka as well as taking in the popular sites. We kept a good pace and we were able to see everything on our itinerary that day. We walked nearly 17,000 steps which was fantastic. Kuromon market was a great place to have lunch and try many different types of foods. The okonomiyaki here was amazing and Hide found us a great spot to enjoy it.
