PRIVATE Half-Day Osaka 4-Hour Off-The-Beaten Track Walking Tour
  • PRIVATE Half-Day Osaka 4-Hour Off-The-Beaten Track Walking Tour

    This is your tour if you demand a private tour with both the big sights as well as a walk on the local side. Plus, since Osaka is "Japan's Kitchen", food will be ever-present, both delightfully downmarket and astoundingly upmarket at times.

    In the "top sights" category, no trip to Osaka would be complete with a stop at Osaka Castle, but after that, we dig a little deeper into the neighborhoods. We finish off with another top sight though, this time the famous Dotonbori, but we don't leave too much time to spend there, as we assume you will browse about the area on your own.

    Your guide will be a native or near-native English speaker (or other language, if that option is selected) who also speaks Japanese, guaranteed. And since this is a private tour, we're happy to make modifications based on your specific interests (additional expenses should be covered by our guests).

    Bonus for families: First kid free!

    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Osaka Castle, 1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku, Osaka 540-0002 Osaka Prefecture

    We think the park Osaka Castle is in, and the exterior of the castle are splendid and rewarding to visit. The tired, poorly designed non-castle interior: Not so much. So we don't go in. Trust us, you're not missing anything.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Osaka Tsuruhashi Ichiba, 1~2 Chome Tsuruhashi, Ikuno-ku, Osaka 544-0031 Osaka Prefecture

    Explore this fabulous time-warp of a market, where fashion, food, and culture noisily collide and birth something wonderful. There's not much pre-war Osaka left to explore, but this is a champion of a local sight. It also highlights the Korean influence on the city.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Abeno Harukas, 1-1-43 Abenosuji, Abeno, Osaka 545-0052 Osaka Prefecture

    So, we don't pay the money to go to the very top of the building, but we know a way to get almost as good a view without waiting in line, and without paying a shiny yen for the privilege either. Afterwards, we go down underground and explore the mysteries of the Japanese department store food hall and markets area. Ready for the most expensive melon you've ever seen- Look but don't touch :)

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Shinsekai, 1 Ebisuhigashi, Naniwaku, Osaka 556-0002 Osaka Prefecture

    This entertainment district dating back around a hundred years has all sorts of sights in store for you, some shiny, and some with a rather worn patina. Both are lots of fun to take in. It's a boisterous center of Osaka culture, and for good reason!

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Dotonbori, Dotombori, Chuo-ku, Osaka 542-0076 Osaka Prefecture

    Sure, we want to show you the less touristed parts of Osaka on this tour, but we'd be remiss to not show you the famous "running man" and Dotonbori at large. But we also take you down some small backstreets even here, and we've got a few interesting stories to tell you as well.

    Duration: 30 minutes

      My brother and I had a wonderful time exploring Osaka with Kevin. His knowledge of the city meant we visited sites we would otherwise not have seen. He went out of his way to ensure my brother, who is confined to a wheelchair, was able to access all the sights along the way. Kevin's dry sense of humour was an added bonus, as was his recommendation for dinner that night. The tour is a must for visitors who would like to see more than just the main attractions and learn a little about life in Osaka.

      Covers a lot of ground in a short space of time.
      Walked a lot.
      Just the right tour if in Osaka for a day.
      Guide was lacking in knowledge of history of Osaka.

      Trains took a lot longer than expected and unfortunately we arrived exactly 5 minutes late. We tried joining up at the next spot, but could not find the group, did not know what we were looking for so eventually gave up, was hoping there might be some flexibility but no. Don't be late
