Historical walking tour of Osaka

Reviewed by: Daniel, 2017/08/24

Great information and thorough. The temperature was over 95 degrees with high humidity so that made the tour uncomfortable; clearly not preventable. We focused most of the time on the Osaka Castle and the Osaka History Museum was closed...this probably should have been confirmed. The tour guide Massashige-San was very knowledgeable.

A relaxed but thorough tour

They said that the participants are mostly foreign tourists and it was their first time having a Japanese guest!

It was during the season when roses around Nakanoshima park were beginning to blossom and I was courteously guided along Okawa (previously Yodogawa) to Osaka Castle, to places such as streets I would not have seen otherwise, back roads, and spots that are easily overlooked.

Whenever I visit a tourist spot for the first time, it is difficult to research about the place by myself and look around in a short period of time. I was often not able to fully tour even the simplest tourist spots. By participating in this tour with a guide, I was able to have a relaxed yet efficient tour without feeling like it I was just skimming the surface of Osaka.

I would love to take another tour if the opportunity arises.

Dear Mr K・T、Thank you for coming to Osaka. We are happy to hear you enjoyed walking from Nakanoshima to Osaka Castle. Osaka has a lot of attractive spots other than Osaka Castle. Now Midosuji, the main street, has been beautifully illuminated to welcome you! We are looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you. Rocking Osaka

No one other than me and my 11 year old son were on the tour, and the guide taught us about the history of Osaka as we walked from Osaka Station to Osaka Castle. This tour was wonderful, as the guide answered all my questions about the Warring States period!
