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".

Hideki was terrific. Very knowledgeable about Osaka and Japan history. He easily adjusted to our more elderly pace and had personal stories about many sites we visited. We got a very good feel for his city. Thank you, Hide! Bonnie and Dick Bell, Calabasas, CA
