Check availability of the tour:


This tour is ideal for cruise ship tourists who stay at Kobe Port. We take local train to Osaka (about 60 minutes), visit Osaka Castle and Dotombori (Namba area), and train back to cruise ship.

Osaka Castle was reconstructed in 1931, still remains some original structures from 17 century. We go up in the main donjon, learn some history of the castle and the city of Osaka.
Dotombori is the most popular shopping district in southern Osaka. We’ll have some local delicacies like Okonomiyaki for lunch.

In case you have any specific requests, place to visit or food to have, please let me know beforehand.

We expect heavy congestion in Osaka Castle during Sakura season and other Japanese holiday seasons (April and beginning of May). The schedule might be changed due to the congestion.
