What you'll do

You could never see all of Osaka’s top attractions in just one day, but you can certainly explore the heart of the city and tick 10 of them off your bucket list! Whether day or night, the Tonbori Riverwalk is a must-have Osaka experience, but your local insider knows the backstreets of Dōtonbori too, where they could lead you straight to the best kushikatsu seller for a quick bite. From exploring historic landmarks like Osaka Castle and Tenmangu Shrine - 1000 years of history which sits peacefully amongst shiny skyscrapers - to modern wonders like Tsūtenkaku, the ‘Tower of Paradise’ overlooking Shinsekai, you’ll get an authentic snapshot of Osaka’s most famous attractions, and grab a bite or two of Osaka’s favorite dishes along the way!

Where you’ll go

You’ll go on a whirlwind experience of Osaka’s most iconic districts. The dizzying pace, animatronic signs and seemingly impossible number of restaurants of Dōtonbori and Namba might not be what you’re used to, but you couldn’t miss exploring the city’s central entertainment hubs! A little further south you’ll find Shinsekai, a fascinating shopping district where you’ll feel for a moment like you’ve stepped back in time to its pre-war heyday. In northern Osaka, Osaka Castle is a must-see, but don’t just whizz through - spend some time exploring the surrounding park before you amble over the O River to Tenma, a historic area home to many of Osaka’s most important shrines and temples, as well as a maze of backstreet izakaya.
