<Highlights of Tour/Where to visit>
①To know the history of Osaka/ Osaka Castle
Osaka Castle was built in 1583 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, as the castle to reign all Japan from Osaka. And that is one of the typical castle built in the plain as the headquarter of governing administration, as same as Edo Castle or Nagoya Castle.
On the wall, there are lots of holes to shoot the gun and you would know that the main weapon at the time this castle was built was the gun.
The gun was introduced to Japan in the middle of 16th century by the Portugese merchants, and during less than 50 years it became the main weapon among Japan. It indicates how high of Japanese industrial technical level at that time.
The main tower was destroyed in the middle of 17 century by the lightning of thunder. But in 1931, Osaka citizens rebuilt the main tower by donating the money out of good will. This indicates that how Osaka citizens love Osaka Castle and how Osaka citizens are independent from Government will of Tokyo.

 Osaka is known as the city of foods among Japanese. Now Osakan soul food "Okonomiyaki" and "takoyaki" are popular among Asians, because some food shops have opened the shops in the south east Asian countries.There are famous shops of such soul food as well as all kinds of Japanese foods in this Area.

③To see 360 degree panoramic view of Osaka/ Umeda Sky-building
Osaka locates at the mouth of Yodogawa river, it connects 1000 years capital Kyoto to the Setonaikai inland sea and to all Japan. And in 17th to 19th century of Edo era, Osaka was called "kitchen of the country", because all the feudal lords Daimyo have the warehouses of rice in Osaka to change the rice to the money here. You can see in one glance from the observatory of Umeda Sky-building of this situation.
Umeda Sky-building was chosen as "Top 20 buildings around the world" by English publisher "THE TIMES" in 2008, only one building from Japan.
