To the northeast of the Umeda city center of Osaka, traditional culture still remains amongst the modern city streets. During this Temple and Shrine Walking Tour in Osaka, you can explore the temples and shrines of Osaka beyond those found in your regular guide book! Your local guide will introduce you to the “Naniwa Shichi-ko Meguri”, a local tour which consists of visiting 7 shrines and temples around Osaka.
During this tour you will only visit a few of the temples and shrines, but your guide will teach you about the sacred places and their histories. If you visit them all in your own time, you will gain the benefits of all 7 types of luck represented by each one! For example, different temples are lucky for academic success, good health, well-being of your family and more.
At the start of this cultural tour you will receive your traditional stamp book to collect stamps at each stop. On the way, you will discover fascinating restaurants and shops that are difficult to come by if you were exploring on your own. You will have the chance to experience the local charm of Osaka and have lunch at a restaurant owned by a friend of your guide.
