My mom and I were the first people to eer take this tour, and I truly can't recommend it any higher. Renee, our guide, was the absolute best and had answers to every one of our questions about Osaka and life in Japan in general. You can't beat great food, great scenery, and great company! One of the highlights of our entire trip to Japan, and I would give Renee a million stars if I could. Seriously, if you're reading this and you're interested, I'd say book it immediately.
