Osaka Day Trip from Kyoto with a Local: Private & Personalized

You’ll join one of our friendly hosts to journey to Osaka, a city which frankly needs no introduction. You’ll explore this spirited city’s highlights and hidden gems – it’s all going down. Traditionally home to Japan’s merchant class, you’ll find Osaka to be less traditional in its approach to politics, food and life – the locals have a wild sense of humor and sure know how to have a good time, and how to make good food!

Within 24 hours after booking you’ll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you’ll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
