Hey there, I'm Larbi, but you can call me Jiro. I'm your friendly local host here in the vibrant heart of Osaka. One of the things I love most about this city is its rich history and iconic landmarks. Osaka Castle, with its centuries-old stories etched in stone, never fails to inspire me. Then there's the electric buzz of Nipponbashi and the lively streets of Namba, each with its own unique charm. When I'm not exploring the city or sharing stories, you'll likely find me doing what Osakans do best: indulging in delicious food and drinks. I know all the hidden gems for an unforgettable culinary journey. I've got the scoop on Osaka's shopping scene. And if you're curious about the city's history, just ask away. I'm here to make your stay unforgettable. Let's explore this amazing city together!
