If you’re looking to switch up the peace and tranquility of lantern-lit Kyoto for neon-lit, animatronic-crab adorned entertainment districts, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll take the bullet train from Kyoto Station to Osaka and explore this food-obsessed city with your host, a local insider. Discover another side of Japan as you visit fast-paced entertainment districts like the canal-side neighborhood Dōtombori or neighboring Namba, both of which are located in the heart of Osaka. On the other side of the canal, check out Shinsaibashi, a shopping district that’s a mecca to modernity, then delve into sub-culture in Amerikamura, an area to the west that’s the heart of Osaka’s youth culture.
Make the most of your short time in Osaka and get to know the city’s culture, discovering its wicked sense of humor - Osaka is famous for its comedy - and seeing where its food-obsessed reputation comes from. Whizz through the city and see top sights like Osaka Castle and get an overview - literally - from the rooftop garden of the Umeda Sky Building or Tsutenkaku, the city’s iconic tower. Your host knows a local trick or two, like where the best kushikatsu - deep-fried, delcious street food that’s a local specialty - is to be found in the famous entertainment district Dōtombori, and you could even squeeze in a cruise along the canal. Throw in an exploration of Shinsaibashi, a shopping paradise, and you’ve got one jam-packed day in Osaka!
