What you'll do

・Begin your tour in front of Takashimaya Namba. Let me introduce myself and make a tour briefing. ・Walk through Ebisubashi shopping arcade (about 400m with 100shops), and feel the energy of osaka city. Let us step into shops you're interested in! ・Photo shooting at the most famous tourist spot Dotonbori! There's variety of food shops and souvenir stores, let's enjoy "eat&walk" in this district. ・Visit Hozenji temple, a serene 380yrs old temple in a quiet and hidden alley. You'll feel mysterious atmosphere there and find the serenity away from lively commercial area. ・Move to the hidden Doguyasuji shopping arcade, where local merchant purchase kitchen tools. If you want to buy a kitchen knife, they can put your name on it for free of charge! ・Have fun making paper lantern/fan with your original calligraphy on it. Of course you can take it home as your only-one souvenir! ・Enjoy "eat&walk" at Kuromon market, a glorious food marketplace with 170 wholesale and retail shops. The tour ends while you're enjoying eating.

Rie

I'm a national licensed tour guide both in english and spanish living in osaka city for 15years. Used to work for airlines and a hotel before, and really love to travel abroad. I first started Airbnb as a traveler abroad, as a host accommodating tourists at home second, and then decided to plan private tours in my beloved city. I love the Airbnb's idea of connecting tourists and locals and it'll be my greatest pleasure if I could help you discover my city and experience something unique. Will be great to have a friendship even after the tour ends (not as a guide but as a friend)!
