What to expect

Often missed on many Japan itineraries, Osaka is more than just a city of commerce - it is the Kansai region’s vibrant heart and soul. This tour takes you by buzzing markets, through a lantern-lit labyrinth, and into the districts famed throughout Japan for their culinary variety and unforgettable atmosphere!

Your Osaka tour begins outside Nipponbashi Station and leads into Kuromon Ichiba market, a street containing over 500 meters of animated market stalls selling Osaka’s freshest meat, fish, and vegetables. You’ll move on to Doguyasuji and to Dobutsuenmae Station and walk to Shinsekai, entering the true core of Osaka’s famous downtown. Shinsekai (literally meaning ‘New World’) was created as an amusement area in 1912, modeled on New York City. You’ll have the chance to see a traditional Sento (Japanese bath) and a newer Supersento. As you leave Shinsekai, you can sample the much-loved Shinsekai kushi-katsu (deep-fried or basted meat and vegetable skewers) and pass traditional izakaya (Japanese-style pubs) before moving onto the glittering jewel of southern Osaka, Dotonbori. Dotonbori is easily the most famous sight in Osaka, home to endless clusters of restaurants, street vendors, bars, and pubs. You can sample Osaka’s most famous food, takoyaki (fried batter balls containing octopus legs) and walk along the canal. Your tour will end at Namba Station.

To take your experience to the next level you can choose to have a private guide, just for you and your group! Simply select the option you prefer at checkout.
