This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Osaka Castle, 1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku, Osaka 540-0002 Osaka Prefecture
Of course you're going to see Osaka Castle, arguably the most iconic spot of great historical significance in Osaka. We'll traverse the grounds, all the while talking about the history, architecture, and significance of the spot. Since the rebuilt interior of the castle is rather disappointing, we recommend giving that a miss. Trust us.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: 1-11-18 Shitennoji, Tennoji, Osaka 543-0051 Osaka Prefecture
This is said to be the oldest Buddhist temple in Japan, and the grounds make for a great place to stroll about. We'll regale you with stories and lob you just enough info on the place to make it interesting without being tedious. Unless you like loads of info, because we have that too. It's your private tour after all! :)
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: Shinsekai, Ebisuhigashi, Naniwaku, Osaka 556-0002 Osaka Prefecture
Fun for all ages, in an odd sort of reality-independent way, this is a must-see while in Osaka. Games, food, fashion (perhaps heavily skewed toward the eye of the beholder), and that general, unmistakable Osaka vibe. No one forgets a visit to Shin-sekai.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Abeno Harukas, 1-1-43 Abenosuji, Abeno, Osaka 545-0052 Osaka Prefecture
Lunch, and a trip up Harukas. We'll have a lunch to your liking in the Tennoji area, which is also where the super tall building known as Harukas is. This being the tallest non-tower building in Japan (300m), there are views aplenty. (We in Osaka have heard there is some tower with a height of biblical proportions in Tokyo, but we're not so interested.) We won't go up to the top of Harukas, but we go high enough to enjoy a breathtaking view of Osaka, and on a good day, all the way to Kobe and more. Some local shopping is available here too, if you're keen.
Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes
Stop At: Kuromon Market, 2-4-1 Nippombashi, Chuo-ku, Nippombashi, Chuo, Osaka 542-0073 Osaka Prefecture
A feast for the eyes, and for the stomach too, if you're interested! Fish, meats, fruits, and a panoply of people all vie for your attention.
Duration: 25 minutes
Stop At: Dotonbori, Dotombori, Chuo-ku, Osaka 542-0076 Osaka Prefecture
We've got a little flexibility here, but we love showing people not only the internationally famous "Running Man" sign, but also some cool back streets, the kitchenware district, and some other sights based on your interests.
