We booked a place on an Osaka food tour for 3 hours, it was our 5th day in Japan & we had struggled with understanding the types of restaurants and what to order once inside. We should have done this tour on our 1st night in Japan!!! Ike, our guide, was excellent, spoke good

A few days ago, I went on a tour of the Shinsekai area of Osaka. My tour guide, Yoko, was really knowledgeable and fun to listen to. She was very kind, teaching me different things about the Japanese language since I've been studying it. The area at night was such a joy to see,

This was really one of the biggest highlights of our trip. I travelled with my two kids (11 and 13 yrs) who cannot stop talking about it. The guide was both knowledgeable, and friendly and went out of her way to make sure we learned both about the food, culture and history.

We did the evening (4:45pm) tour and it was great! The main reason my husband and I loved it was because of our guide, Masaki. He was so friendly and knowledgable, and it felt like we were being guided by a friend. It was wonderful spending time with a local and learning more

YAY! that is such a kind and wonderful review. We will be sure to tell Masaki that he had a home run here. <3 We work hard to train all our guides so hopefully even if Masaki is not the guide our guests end the tour with new friends and lots of local knowledge. Thank you again.

Our Osaka Retro Tour was a day tour due to our schedule, maybe the night tour would have been better. The area was a visual feast but the tour itself was lacking. The food was nothing special or even particularly interesting. Having read a lot about Osaka being the heart of

Sorry this was not a good fit for you. We try our best to offer lots of times and different patterns for different guests. Were you able to visit the knife shop? Try the pressed sushi? If you don't mind what food would you have been more interested to experience as we are always looking for feedback and open to improvements all the time. This tour has been very popular lately so we want to make sure we are always checking on all the parts of our tours. Did the guide explain the history of the area and local stories? Thanks in advance for any more details if you prefer you can write us at info@arigatojapan.co.jp
