Full description
Explore the great city of Osaka with a guide who knows Osaka and caters to Muslim visitors. Your tour starts at your hotel accommodation then immediately heads to Osaka Castle. This was the base of Hideyoshi Toyotomi’s unification of the country in 1583. The castle interior is now a historical museum, housing valuable materials and dioramas. 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 Osaka Castle, head to Minami Osaka (Namba) by train to explore this vibrant part of the city. Afterwards, you may have lunch at the Bulls where you can enjoy a sukiyaki lunch made with Halal-certified beef.

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.

Visit Dotonbori and stop at Osaka’s most famous photo spots. Then continue on downtown to Osaka’s Shinsaibashi shopping street for some time to browse.

Following Shinsaibashi, the tour will move on to "Kita" (Umeda) area by subway. The first stop is Umeda Sky Building, which British Times magazine included in their “20 of the world's leading buildings." Interesting architecture flows up the 170m height, all the way up to the "Floating Garden Observatory," where you can appreciate vast views over the city of Osaka and more, all the way to Awaji Island. This observatory, which has both inside and outside viewing areas, is a superlative experience.
