Overview

Osaka, which has a 1,500-year history as the "water capital," was the center of Japan between the 16th and 19th centuries, and also the home of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, the father of modern Japanese unification. You’ll get to visit his castle, Osaka Castle, and learn why even today Japan holds great appeal and is still known domestically as the nation’s kitchen. While Tokyo may be the biggest city in Japan now, Osaka has always flourished as a center of the Japanese economy. Today’s visitors to Japan, in addition to exploring Tokyo and Kyoto, should not pass up the opportunity to explore the bustling metropolis of Osaka!

This tour starts at your hotel accommodation then immediately heads to Osaka Castle. Osaka Castle was the base of Hideyoshi Toyotomi’s unification in 1583, and he is the one who started construction of the castle on the site of the Ishiyama Honganji. The castle fell in 1615 during the great Summer Battle of Osaka, but was reused by the Tokugawa Shogunate until the castle tower burned down in a lightning strike. The current castle tower, rebuilt in 1931, is the third generation. The castle interior is now a historical museum, housing valuable materials and diorama. 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 we go to "Minami Osaka (Namba)" by train and explore this vibrant part of the city. Afterwards, we have lunch at the "BULLS," where you can enjoy a sukiyaki lunch made with Halal certified beef.
After lunch, we will enjoy a stroll in part of Osaka’s “kitchen," 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. After Kuromon market, move to Dotonbori. After stopping at Osaka’s most famous photo spot, you will be taken further downtown to Osaka’s Shinsaibashi shopping street, which runs from Dotonbori. We’ll have time for a bit of shopping here too. Following Shinsaibashi, we move on to "Kita" (Umeda) area by subway. Last spot to visit it the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living is the first of its kind in Japan, showcasing the history and culture of housing in Japan. The museum has a variety of exhibits starting from the latter half of the Edo period through to post-war Japan (1800–1950), with dioramas and models reproducing classic street ambiance from long ago. Indoors, you can enjoy morning, day and nighttime atmosphere through different forms of illumination, giving the feeling you have traveled back in time. You can also try wearing a kimono for a very affordable price. With a guide who knows Osaka and caters to our Muslim & Vegetarian visitors, you are sure to have a very pleasant day exploring this great city!
