What To Expect

Your Osaka sightseeing tour begins at Nipponbashi station. From here, you’ll follow your guide to Kuromon Ichiba Market, famed for its hole-in-the wall restaurants and plethora of market stalls.

Next, stroll onto Sennichimae Doguyasuji Shopping Street, where countless cooking utensils jostle for space with unique souvenirs, before entering Shinsekai, the core of Osaka’s famous downtown.

Admire vibrant landmarks such as Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka’s answer to the Eiffel Tower, and Luna Park, and sample a local favorite, kushi-katsu (deep fried meat or vegetable skewers) as you pass inviting izakaya (Japanese-style pubs).

Then, you’ll arrive in Osaka’s most famous enclave, Dotonbori. Under the ambient cloak of darkness, the canal-side strip bursts into life with neon lights and animated signs, the most well-known being ‘The Running Man.’ Snap photographs of the enormous mechanical crab, sample Osaka staple takoyaki (fried octopus balls), and receive recommendations for restaurants and bars from your guide.

Your tour concludes at the original departure point.

A great evening in Osaka!

I was very lucky that it was just myself and the guide, Fumiko on this tour. Fumiko has an excellent English, very friendly and knowledgeable. She made the effort of finding out things for me like where to get Pokemon stuffs for my son :) Our tour started at Kuromon market and Fumiko introduced me to various wonderful arrays of food and snacks that I wouldn’t have tried if I were to go around on my own. We explored the touristy areas and little alleyways. One of my favourites was the visit to Hozenji temple. An evening visit to the temple with lanterns all lit up was very romantic. We then went to Shinsekai to try more delicious food. The neighbourhood has an old charm feeling to it and you can find a group of old men playing Go & Shogi. I had the most wonderful evening with Fumiko! Thank you! 😀

Tour guide was unfriendly...

Tour guide was unfriendly, definitely not a people person. Kept emphasising areas on the tour that he didnt want to do or would rather swim across than go through. On arrival I smiled to say hello and he wouldnt even smile. He was also too softly spoken and hard to hear. Disinterested and judgemental, I wouldnt recommend.
