EXO Classic: Osaka City Tour
- Full Day
The first stop of the morning is at Osaka Castle, one of the most visited places in the city for its history, architectural design, and cherry blossom trees all abloom in spring. Aside from the artefacts on display and the view of the city from its topmost floor, the surrounding garden and moats make the castle one of the must-see places in the city.

This is followed by a scenic cruise along Okawa River, which offers views of Nakanoshima Park and the red-brick Mint Museum. In spring, the riverbanks of Okawa are lined with cherry blossom trees, making the trip more spectacular.

Return to the Namba area for a better feel of the "Osakan vibe." The afternoon tour includes a walk through the busy streets of Dotonbori, which has long been referred to as Osaka's entertainment district and restaurant mecca. Although not as well-visited as the main shopping and dining arcade, the backstreets of Dotonbori still has a few hidden gems that can be a bit surprising.

One of these is the Kamigata Ukiyo-e Museum, the sole museum in the world that has permanent displays of the Kamigata-style ukiyo-e, or woodblock-printed books and paintings. The regions of Osaka and Kyoto used to be called Kamigata because of the prosperous industry in woodblock printing.

Another interesting spot is Hozen-ji Yokocho, an area with narrow alleys filled with more than 60 traditional restaurants and izakaya. At the end of one of these alleys is Hozen-ji Temple, wherein worshippers splash water on the statue of the deity instead of tossing coins as offerings.

Before the guests part ways with the guide, a small serving of one of Osaka's local dishes can be enjoyed, like yakisoba (stir-fried noodles), okonomiyaki (a pancake with cabbage, ginger, and meat) or takoyaki (fried batter with a slice of octopus meat in the centre).
