Going to Osaka just for one day well worth it.

From Kyoto it takes only 30 minutes to get to Osaka station taking the JR express train (From Tokyo it takes about 2 hours and a half). With some of the most famous landmarks in Japan, amazing food and historically the merchant capital of Japan, there’s a lot to try, see, eat and drink in the third-largest city of Japan and the metropolis of the Kansai region.

We’ve put together a tour of some of the best things to do in Osaka for a day.

This is a perfect one-day tour customized just for you. Your local guide will plan an itinerary according to the places you want to visit the most.

Because this is our most flexible tour,  you can choose at least 4 of your favorite sites in Osaka to visit. Our suggested popular sightseeing spots are:

  • Umeda Sky Building and Floating Gardens (stunning high-rise building near Osaka and Umeda Stations. On the top of the building is the Floating Garden Observatory, where you can get a view of the city landscape from a height of 170 meters).
  • Osaka Castle (Residence of the Toyotomi clan and important landmark of Japan. This castle was an important site during the unification of Japan in the sixteenth century)
  • Dotombori and Shinsaibashi (This district is a symbol of the South area of Osaka and the best spot to enjoy the kuidaore food culture of Osaka).
  • Doguyasuji street - Hozenji (Most ancient street of the south district of Osaka and temple that survived a fire incident where a statue of the Buddha is covered with moss).
  • Shinsekai (interesting district of Osaka developed before the war and that has remained unchanged over the years)
  • Abeno Harukas (Japan’s tallest building, with 300 m of height).

If you have other sites in mind please let us know, we will be happy to take you where you want.
