Osaka Afternoon Walking Tour with Osaka River Cruise

After meeting your guide at Hotel Granvia Osaka, make your way to Higashi-Umeda Station and board the subway train to Tenmabashi Station. Disembark and follow your guide on a walk to the renowned Osaka Castle, constructed with immense stones in the 16th century. Explore around the magnificent castle, which stands on a stone rampart and towers over the city. These surroundings are lovely in any season and particularly brilliant when cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

Inside, spend time looking over the 3D exhibits, holograms and eye-catching displays that depict old Osaka. Before accompanying you on your river cruise, your guide will point out the many relics of the Toyotomi who originally built the castle.

Leaving this monument behind, it’s a short walk to the nearby embarkation point of the Aqua Liner. Board the pleasure boat for a 1-hour river cruise around Nakanoshima lsle with your guide. You’ll enjoy seasonal views of autumn leaves or cherry blossoms strewn among Osaka's major landmarks including Osaka Castle, Umeda Sky Building and City Hall.

After your relaxing boat ride, disembark and walk with your guide to Osakajo-Koen Station for the return ride on the JR local line to Osaka Station. From there, make your own way back to your hotel.
