Osaka Walking Tour

On this walking tour, visit Osaka’s highlights without having to worry about navigation or language hassles. You’ll have an English-speaking guide to translate menus, lead you on the subway, and provide fascinating local insights you wouldn’t hear if traveling alone. See historical sites, the business center, and the Dotonbori entertainment district, and get a taste of Osaka comfort food.

What to Expect

Your walking tour of Japan’s third largest city, begins by meeting your guide at a designated spot near Osaka Station. You’ll see the modern architecture of the area, and then continue to browse the colorful depachika (food market) in Umeda.

You’ll have no worries about navigation, as your guide will teach you how to ride the subway, and take you to Shinsekai district (an old area of Osaka). You’ll learn about its history and then try kushikatsu (deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables), a local comfort food.

The final stop on your trip is Dotonbori (Namba area), the entertainment district known for its bright lights, central canal, eateries, theaters, and shops. You’ll visit Hozenji Temple and learn about the area's attractions before the tour concludes here.

Easy going and interesting

Very easy going tour, very friendly and accommodating tour guide. At a time it felt like it was a bit of advertisement for local businesses but overall I would recommend this tour.
