Browse Our Osaka Tours

Welcome to the “Kitchen of Japan,” where history and Kansai customs collide with phenomenal food, lively nightlife and gregarious southern hospitality. Osaka, the exuberant prefectural capital, is home to such national treasures as Osaka Castle and the ancient Shinto temple of Sumiyoshi-taisha, as well as monuments to kitsch and pop culture (think giant, neon Glico Running Man). But on a Backyard Travel private Osaka tour, you’ll discover more than the iconic sites—you’ll head down little-known alleys crowded with pubs, gobble takoyaki at street stalls, and discover how real Osakans spend time in this wondrous city.

Fabrice Barbin was excellent on communication and responsiveness. The guides were excellent and all the hosts who met us were there as planned…no hic-ups. Thank you. The only concern, were we felt the itinerary was not unique and something we couldn’t have done ourselves or with another agency. We organized the Mario cars, a food tour on our own. We also learned our first day the boat ride on the itinerary wasn’t operating, so we had to re-arrange, which the guide paid for.

Communicated clearly and helpfully over an extended period several months before our trip to suggest, advise and recommend places to see and how to go about it. They engaged professional local guides for one full day private tour in each major city and provided good information for how we could get about on our own the other days. They booked the hotels and provided flexible train tickets so that we could make changes if and when we desired.

Backyard Travel’s customer service is excellent, we changed our itinerary a few times and this was accommodated without question and expediently. The self guide app includes the complete itinery along with recommended places to eat and attractions nearby we found really helpful. The local guides were informative and helpful too guiding it’s around the underground and taxis until we felt like locals.
I am hoping to book another experience with them soon.

What’s Special about Osaka?

Mixing feudal history with boisterous nightlife, hearty cuisine and cosmopolitan flare, Osaka is full of unforgettable experiences. Ascend to the sky and gaze down on a glittering city from the Umeda Sky Building, travel back in time to the late 16th century at Osaka Castle, and titillate your taste buds on Dotonbori. There’s never a dull moment in Osaka.

Character

Osakans are famous in Japan for being fun-loving and witty, quick to share a joke and a laugh. In Osaka, you’re sure to feel the friendliness of Kansai culture first-hand.

Kansai Cuisine

There’s good reason why Osaka is known as the “Kitchen of Japan”: Kansai, the southern region of Japan’s Honshu Island, is renowned for its hearty food, including a dizzying variety of snacks and street foods.

Nightlife

Osaka is a city of neon and nightlife. The best of the city’s pubs, bars and restaurants can be found on the famed Dotonbori promenade. For lovely nighttime views of a glittering cityscape, head to the observation deck of Umeda Sky Building.

Osaka Castle

Towering above a garden of cherry blossoms and intricately manicured topiaries, Osaka Castle is the city’s most important historical site. Designated a national cultural asset, the castle was first built in the 16th century by Japan’s “great unifier,” Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

Language

Although Japan is not known for multilingualism, you can rest assured that your Backyard Travel guide and most tourism professionals in Osaka will speak English. The local dialect of Japanese spoken here is called “Osaka-ben.”

Colorful History

Osaka was known as “Naniwa” in the 8th century, and the city once served as the imperial capital of Japan. A bustling port city, Osaka has remained one of the nation’s great commercial centers. Today, it is Japan’s second-largest metropolitan region, after Tokyo.
