Hi guys! Do you know there are still so many photo spots in Osaka? I am so happy that I have finally gotten this opportunity to introduce you much more hidden but beautiful & photogenic places you will feel part of "real Osaka." I have packed 3 things I think is local in this photo tour, so I wish I can hear your reactions such as you cannot even reach the things without our photo tour. What I would like you to do is to try unique experiences with being taken photos of yours. Your tour guide will explain history and interesting stories of each spot as a tour guide's point of view as well as take sophisticated photos as a viewpoint of a photographer. Have you tried only one tram in Osaka? Are you curious about the shrine with 1800 years of history? Try this tour, and we will show you what we the locals have been familiar with through generations.

Walk through a retro but real Osaka archade and find our old symbol of Shinsekai,Tsutenkaku

On arrival at the meeting point, our tour guide / photographer will take you on an unforgettable adventure through Shinsekai, Tsutenkaku. Explore the local spots, and take photos in front of Tsutenkaku. Then, walk around the Shinsekai photogenic places recommended by photographers. These places and our guides will provide you with unforgettable solo trip, honeymoon, and family travel moments taken with a camera.

Continue walking and discover a tiny platform & one-man Hankai tram right in the middle of Shinsekai

After taking photos in Shinsekai, we will be going through the local shopping street and heading to a local tram station. At the station, we will take photos with a colourful tram. If there are not so many passengers, we also can try to take photos inside car and feel like a local!

Travel on a tram and reach the peaceful, sacred and historical shrine in unique architecture

About 15 minutes later, you will find from a tram window a huge Torii gate of Sumiyoshi Taisha shrine, one of the most historical buildings in Osaka. In the shrine, we will have photos with the famous bridge and lanterns, which you can feel Japan, with the sunset.
