Osaka Walking Tour
From US$32.53
Overview

This whistle-stop walking tour of Osaka’s highlights will eliminate any potential language barriers you could encounter. You’ll have an English-speaking guide to translate menus, navigate, and give you fascinating local insights you wouldn’t hear if traveling alone. You’ll see historical sites, the business center, and the Dotonbori entertainment district. Try Osaka comfort food, visit a temple, ride the subway, and see other popular landmarks.

What to Expect

Your walking tour in Japan’s third largest city—Osaka, 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 colourful ‘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 area of your trip is Dotonbori (Namba area)—the entertainment district, which is known for its bright lights, central canal, eateries, theaters, and shops. You’ll visit Hozenji Temple, learn about the area's attractions, and then the tour ends here.

A bit odd

We have done over a dozen walking tours around the world, and we found the format of this to be strange and slow-paced. We spent over an hour (so 1/3 of the tour) of the time in Osaka Station City (a shopping complex). Some of...More
