Osaka Private Tour: From Historic Tenma To Dōtonbori’s Pop Culture - 8 Hours

Spend the day with one of our hosts to discover the true nature of Osaka – head’s up, it’s got a wild sense of humor and is obsessed with food. Explorer (not tourist) is what we’re aiming for here, and in that spirit, you could explore neighborhoods like the fashionable Shinsaibashi or crazy Dotonbori and maybe you’ll discover hidden gems like the smaller shrines and historic streets. Grab a quick bite to eat and see why Osaka is known as the ‘Nation’s Kitchen’ before continuing your adventure through the neon streets of this enigmatic port city.

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’ll 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
