Tour Itinerary
Start your 6.5-hour walking tour from Hotel Granvia Osaka, where you’ll meet your friendly guide. Make your way to the Floating Garden Observatory, an open-air sky bridge connecting the two towers of the Umeda Sky Building. You’ll spend approximately 1 hour enjoying panoramic views overlooking the city, Awaji Island and Mt Ikoma.

After a delicious Japanese lunch, head to Higashi-Umeda Station for a subway ride to Temmabashi Station (non-reserved seating) with your guide. Disembark for Osaka Castle, noted for its magnificence and the immense stones used in its construction. The renovated castle rises above the city on a stone rampart, and was built in 1583 as the intended capital of Japan. Many relics of old Osaka and the Toyotomi who built the castle are exhibited inside.

From here it’s a short walk to the riverboat dock to board the Aqua Liner for a 1-hour cruise around Nakanoshima. Enjoy breathtaking seasonal landscapes with passing views that include Osaka Castle, the Twin Towers and City Hall on Nakanoshima lsle.

At the end of your tour, proceed with your guide to Osakajo-Koen Station for the return ride on the JR local line to Osaka Station. Then continue exploring the city on your own or find your way back to your hotel.

Tour Itinerary
Start at Nijo Castle, a former residence of the Tokugawa Shogun. Completed in 1626, Nijo Castle is noted for the contrast of its solemn appearance and gorgeous interiors. (Note: When Nijo Castle is closed you’ll visit Ryoan-ji Temple instead.)

After touring the castle, head to nearby Kinkaku-ji Temple, Kyoto’s most popular Zen Buddhist temple. Home to perhaps the world’s most authentic and exquisite Japanese garden, the temple features the celebrated Golden Pavilion whose wooden structure is completely covered in gold leaf.

Next, visit Kyoto Imperial Palace, which clearly demonstrates the Japanese taste for purity, simplicity and tranquility. With your guide you’ll gain exclusive access to the former residence of the Emperor of Japan before the capital moved to Tokyo. When the Kyoto Imperial Palace is closed, the tour will visit Kitano Shrine (Kitano Tenman-gu) instead. This famous shrine, known as the god of study, has been designated a national treasure and is particularly worth seeing for its Japanese plum blossoms and colored leaves.

Enjoy a Japanese set meal for lunch (vegetarian option available) before you’re off to Nara, located in the Kinai Plain less than one hour from Kyoto. Due to its past as the first permanent capital of Japan, established in the year 710 at Heijo, the city now known as Nara remains full of iconic sites.

See Todai-ji Temple, one of Japan’s most famous and historically significant temples, constructed in the 8th century. In its huge precincts are various national treasures of Japan. Step foot in the Daibutsuden (Great Buddha Hall), one of the world’s largest wooden buildings, before a stop at Kasuga Shrine. This most famous and beautiful Shinto shrine features some 3,000 antique stone and bronze lanterns.

Before your day trip ends, your guide will take you to Nara Nagomikan, Nara’s biggest souvenir shop where you’ll have the opportunity to browse for about 20 minutes. Here, you’ll find a variety of food products, sweets, and goods exclusive to Nara. Afterward, head to Kintetsu-Nara Station for the rail ride back to Osaka-Namba Station on the Kintetsu line (non-reserved seat) with your guide. Upon arrival back in Osaka, you’ll make your own way back to your hotel.
