You’ll start in a “depachika” (literally “department store basement”) that’s a wonderland of food. Then, visit the longest shopping street in Osaka, Tenjinbashisuji, to take in the local color and enjoy a walkthrough. Next, it’s lunchtime. Whether you’re craving ramen, sushi, or curry, Yoko has a recommended spot for you! Let her know your preferences in advance and she’ll coordinate for you. After making a wish at Tenmangu Shrine, it’s back to Yoko’s apartment to wind down with a cup of green tea. After saying farewell, Yoko can point you in the direction of another local hotspot: Osaka Castle, where you can continue on if you wish. Tired of typical tourist experiences?
