Tour Overview

Play a city game in the heart of Osaka and learn about the city's evolution from the Edo period to the present. Remember, Osaka is a foodie heaven, so you'll see a lot of unusual dishes along the way, and we recommend you try some of them.

Are you prepared to travel through time in the nation's kitchen?


You're an old merchant from the Edo period in the 18th century, arriving by boat from a distant village to buy the newest goods on the market and sell them in your region.

The Dotonbori district is well-known throughout Japan as a foodie heaven, home to dishes and products you never imagined existed. However, a strong storm catches you on the sea during your journey. You miraculously survive, but when you awaken, you are 300 years in the future, in the present day.

You must now find a new way home, but remember to bring some of the delicious food you will find with you.
