My priority is to have fun and an amazing experience day out for you. I really look forward to showing you Osaka.


Welcome to Osaka, a vibrant metropolis, inhabited by famously easy-going citizens (like me) with a taste for the good things in life.

Osaka has a long history of the oldest seaports in Japan, which had been a vital role as the gate to the Imperial capital from abroad from 8th to 19th century.
There are so many canals and rivers in this city that Osaka was once called the "Water Metropolis".
I will show you a typical one, Dotonbori River.

Osaka also has been affectionately dubbed "Kitchen of Japan" or "Kuidaore" (a deep appreciation of gourmet pursuit to eat oneself bankrupt)
So it's my turn to guide you to famous places, must have foods, and restaurants that provide an authentic experience.

You can enjoy spectacular places of interest, off the beaten path dining spots, the best photo opportunities and all of the highlights from local points of view exploring the nooks and crannies of Osaka, with a 1 day subway ticket.

A Recent Review of this tour

After my first day in Osaka with Yoshiro, I feel like I have been here 6 months. We covered history, cuisine, daily life, shopping and odd facts. Ask Yoshiro to tell you about the fish in sushi!!
