ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Osaka Castle, 1-1 Osakajo, Chuo, Osaka 540-0002 Osaka PrefectureThe castle beloved by the people of Osaka is a must-see. Let’s enjoy walking through the vast grounds which are beautifully arranged. The castle surrounded by moats and stone walls was built as a symbol of power and of course to protect the warrior lords from enemies. Many cunning devices are built into the approach and the castle itself. While approaching it it might be fun to presume that you were a samurai general or a ninja and think about how to attack this solid castle. Duration: 1 hourStop At: Kuromon Market, 2-4-1, Nippombashi, Chuo, Osaka 542-0073 Osaka PrefectureKuromon Ichiba Market, comprised of 150 stores, is famous for its fresh seafood which reminds us of the fact that Osaka is facing the sea. It is a good venue for strolling, sampling, and snacking on a delicious variety of fresh local foods such as sushi, grilled shrimp and puffer fish. Let’s enjoy the same food that Osakan people love so much to eat.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Dotombori District, Chuo-ku, Dotombori, Chuo, Osaka 542-0076 Osaka PrefectureIn Dotonbori let’s explore the maze of alleys with ever-changing sites that appear in front of us at each turn of a corner. There are plenty of tiny shops, and you can guess what they deal in by looking at their unique signboards.In Hozenji Temple, we face a very rare mystic Buddha (Mizukake Fudo) covered in moss as worshippers offer water each time when they give a prayer to the Buddha.In the narrow alleys you will see small torii gates painted on the walls of buildings. Find out about their ingenious purpose on site. We will also take a walk around Ebisu Bridge, which is the most popular spot in Osaka. Taking pictures with the iconic signboard ‘The Glico Man’ in the background will make for funny memories.Duration: 30 minutes

We were happy to shake our jet lag and have someone takes us around the highlights of Osaka. Our tour guide was very sweet, if not a little light on facts. Again, good to get our feet wet right away. That Metro is something else!
