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!

City Unscripted provided a fantastic guide -- Akira -- a true local per our request. He carefully read all of our messages and crafted a day-long exploration for us to spec. Akira is very knowledgeable about popular tourist attractions and about off-the-beaten-track sites in Osaka. He offered optional adjustments to our itinerary as we went, and taught us a lot about how to get around on our own. For those who need it, his English is phenomenal. We could not have been more highly satisfied with the experience.
We had a great visit with Brice in Osaka...he was a wonderful tour guide through the city. He was very knowledgeable about the city...it’s history..and it’s culture. We wanted to see some tourist sites and some just normal neighborhoods and we got just that. We had a wonderful day!
I had a great tour of Osaka with my guide Aki. She was an amazing guide who showed me a ton of great places for my first day. She not only showed me how to use the metro and advised me on what card to get, but she also gave me recommendations for my stay. She was extremely flexible and during the entire day also wanted to know if I was interested in staying longer or seeing something different. Her English was great and a good guide overall. I highly recommend a tour with Aki.
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
