Spend your day off in both traditional and modern Japanese way.
Tenma, Osaka used to be one of the biggest business districts in Japan during the Edo period and it still has the longest shopping street in Japan! You can wear a “kimono”, traditional Japanese clothing and walk around the area.
Osaka Museum of Housing and Living which you will visit on this tour is a hot spot where you can play with traditional toys and watch old housing.
The shopping street is also fun with many shops such as a clothes store where you can buy clothes from your head to toe for only JPY1,000 and a shop where you can prepare your own “matcha”, green tea served in ceremonies.
Don’t forget to book your tour to discover the ancient and modern area: Tenma!
