Full description
This tour starts at your hotel accommodation then immediately heads to Osaka Castle. Osaka Castle was the base of Hideyoshi Toyotomi’s unification in 1583, and he is the one who started construction of the castle on the site of the Ishiyama Honganji. The castle interior is now a historical museum, housing valuable materials and diorama. On the outside, you can enjoy Osaka Castle from various angles and appreciate its magnificent stone walls, architectural features, the vast moat, and many other points of interest around the castle.

After lunch, the tour will stroll in part of Osaka’s kitchen district, Kuromon Market. The fresh food market has a history of over 100 years, with about 180 stores selling fish, fruit, and more in the same marketplace. There is a big bustle every day as Osaka’s kitchen flaunts its treasure trove of fresh ingredients.
