It starts on land.

The starting point is “Kawa-no-eki-hachikenya”. Let’s get on! With a delightful guide, the atmosphere in the bus becomes cheerful.

The guidance is only in Japanese, but it is fun to witness the scenery. The bus has no windows, so it’s an open atmosphere! I was expecting the strong wind to be a little refreshing, but it was a bit cold. It’s nice in the hot summer, but you’d better bring a raincoat if it rains.

The road tour is a great ride and passes by several famous sites.
The Osaka history museum is unexpectedly very modern, contrary to the fact that they exhibit old historical items of Osaka. “Osaka fucho” is a historical building that was built in 1926. It is often used as a filming location for movies.
The Japan Mint is a hidden place, great for spectacular views of cherry blossom trees. The 560-meter long, “Sakura-no-torinuke” tunnel is popular among people every year. It’s a must see if you are visiting here during spring.
