What to expect
Get a taste for the top sights in Osaka as you visit the renowned Osaka Castle before heading out on a scenic river cruise where you’ll enjoy top-notch views of some of the city’s other top sights. It’s the perfect opportunity to get an overview of the history and unique attractions of this unexpected Japanese metropolis. Start by meeting your guide around midday at the Hotel Granvia Osaka, where you’ll head to the subway to take a quick ride to Tenmabashi station for a visit to Osaka Castle. This immense defensive structure, first built in the 16th century, offers an impressive landmark that towers above the area’s surrounding park. It’s a particularly scenic spot during the spring, when Japan’s cherry blossoms are out in full force. Head inside the Castle, where you’ll have a chance to explore its unique 3D exhibits, holograms and other intriguing displays illustrating historic Osaka. You’ll also see the many relics left behind by the Toyotomi, who were responsible for the castle’s construction. Continue next to the riverbanks to begin your cruise of the waterways of Osaka. Climb aboard your ship, the Aqua Liner, for a leisurely cruise around Osaka’s Nakanoshima lsle, checking out key landmarks such as City Hall, the Umeda Sky Building and Osaka Castle. Depending on the time of year, you may also be able to see beautiful displays of autumn leaves or blooming cherry trees in spring. Finish your board ride and climb back on land with your guide, heading to Osakajo-Koen station for the return ride back.
