Tips and recommendations by our official guides

In this cycling tour, we will guide you to Shinsekai, Sitenno-ji temple, and Osaka Castle.

Shinsekai is very gaudy and bustling city where people often drink from noon.
In there, we'll visit a Kushikatsu restaurant and have authentic Osaka food called Kushikatsu, deep-fried meat or vegetable on skewers.

After that, we will visit Shitenno-ji temple, which has more than 1400 years history. There are beautiful 5 story pagoda and huge Buddha statues.

Then, we will be headed to Osaka castle. Osaka Castle is one of the three greatest castles in Japan, so I'm sure you will be amazed.

On the way to the castle, we stop by a local takoyaki shop, so please try our local favorites! Also, throughout the tour, your guide will teach you fun facts about Japanese history and culture.

I know that when you're traveling in Japan, you'll find yourself eating a lot because of the delicious food, so I hope this tour will give you the opportunity to exercise a bit to refresh yourself and be healthy.

In this tour, some of the food you'll be trying will be inclusive, but of course, you're free to buy any snacks or drinks at your expense. We're going to visit some souvenir shops, and we'll walk along the shopping streets, so there will be plenty of food for your tastebuds to explore.

Around Osaka Castle, the roads are well-maintained and it's not as crowded as the other parts of Osaka, so you don't have to worry about cycling in the crowd. It's nice and safe!! Also, one thing I can say is that cycling is very common in Japan, so it's a cycle-friendly country. We will have a small group, so you can feel free to tell us whenever you'd like to stop to take photos or take a break. The total distance that we're going to cycle will be around 14km, and most of the roads will be flat. So, I would like to welcome all solo travelers, friends, couples, and families! Please keep in mind that the minimum height requirement for this tour is 150cm (5 feet).

Please come and join us for this cycling adventure around Osaka Castle!! Let's have an awesome experience together in this unique atmosphere!!

If you are a biker and willing to explore town by bicycle, we have bike tours in Tokyo and Kyoto as well! Check them out more for your adventure!

The first place to visit is Shinsekai city where many gaudy exterior restaurant are gathered. You'll be amazed how the restaurant exterior are huge and unique! we'll have small lunch of Kushiage, deep-fried meat and vegetable on skewers, to taste Osaka's soul food. After you've enjoyed indulging Kushikatsu, we will briefly go and have a look at the oldest temple in Osaka, Shiteno-ji temple. Feel relaxed a bit in the temple after lunch, and we'll head to Osaka Castle.

Head towards the beautiful Osaka Castle, and cycle around its premises.

Osaka Castle is located in the middle of a very large park known as Osaka Castle Park. It's approximately 105 hectares big!! So instead of taking a long walk and using up all your energy for the day, why not use a bicycle?! You'll also feel the nice breeze as you cycle near to the castle. On top of that, we'll take a stroll and take photos with the Osaka Castle!
