OSAKA CASTLE AND BUFFET LUNCH
In this tour, you will visit Osaka Castle and the center of Osaka, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. Osaka Castle, which is a famous landmark, a popular sightseeing spot and the symbol of Osaka, contains thirteen structures which have been designated as Important Cultural Assets by the Japanese government. Of special note are the grand gates and turrets along the outer moat. The steep walls that rise close to 30 meters high are made of huge blocks of stone that were transported to Osaka from quarries over 100 kilometers away. The sheer height of the walls and the wide moats they rise above make for a grand sight that can be matched by no other castle in Japan. Following you will drive to Shinsaibashi-Suji Shopping Street, which runs east to Mido-Suji Avenue. It is the best-known shopping area in Osaka and an enduring symbol of the city. With a history of 380 years, it was already an established shopping area in the Edo Period. Shops of all kinds and for all ages line the street, a roofed arcade 600 meters long. There are traditional kimono tailors, western clothing and footwear retailers, restaurants and fast food outlets, jewelers, and boutiques featuring the latest fashions. It's great to take a casual stroll through the Shinsaibashi area. Many people enjoy window-shopping and savoring the food along the way.
