With so much to see in just eight hours, your local host will lead you by the senses, soaking you in the sights, smells, and tastes of Osaka. The famous canal network can give you a unique view of Dōtonbori, Osaka’s premier entertainment district before you visit hidden treasures like Osaka Central Wholesale Market, stocked full of fresh produce and tasty snacks, and Kouri, where street food and liquor come at wholesale prices. You could immerse yourself in Japanese history at the Tenmangu Shrine, then immerse yourself in Tenma’s tangle of tiny bars where you’ll be treated to an authentic taste of the city’s favorite dishes, from okonomiyaki pancakes to deep-fried kushikatsu!
Osaka is known for being the least conservative city in Japan, for its absolute obsession with food and its wicked sense of humor. You’ll have no trouble discovering that, and more, with your local insider to lead the way through the city. You could explore Minami, a buzzing hub in the heart of the city whose name means ‘south’ where you’ll find the Dōtonbori, the entertainment and pop culture district. Perhaps explore Tenma, a historic area on the banks of the O River that’s home to the Tenmangu Shrine and a lantern-lit maze of izakaya bars come nightfall, or take it all off in a super sento bathhouse in Kita, where you swap clothes for supreme comfort!
