Description

Chauffeured in a private taxi, enjoy Osaka's sights without the hassle of navigating trains and transportation. See icons like Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, the vibrant neighborhood of Shitenno-ji, and the towering Umeda Sky Building.

Your driver picks you up from your hotel and stops first at Osaka Castle, one of the most recognizable castles in Japan and the symbol of Osaka. Go for a stroll through the 16th-century turrets and gates to learn of the stronghold's history. Around midday, head to Dotonbori, the famous shopping and entertainment street that gives the city its nickname of the “nation's kitchen.” The road is lined with vibrant neon and mechanized signs, including the iconic Glico Running Man, and invites travelers to step into its restaurants for a taste of fresh seafood and regional specialties.

After free time for lunch and shopping, drive to Shitenno-ji, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in the nation with a history dating back to 593 AD. Visit the inner precinct to marvel at and climb a 5-story pagoda in which Prince Shotoku, the founder of the temple, is enshrined. Following this peek into the past, take in a modern perspective of Osaka from the Umeda Sky Building. The skyscraper's towers are connected by the Floating Garden Observatory, where you can savor 360-degree vistas of the city from 558 feet (170 m) above the ground.
