About 2hours tour on foot. Originally this area was South edge of Osaka castle in 15DC So you can find some relics of castle moat without water. This area, KARAHORI is named after moat without water(KARA=empty, HORI=moat). Now a day there still remain many off the beaten path, like maze and many Machiya(mercantile houses). On the off the beaten path, you can find tiny shrines, well, stone wall build in 15DC. Visiting each shrine is one of this tour topic because each shrine has different genius symbol, e.g. foxes, mirror. Talking about mercantile houses, some are still have habitats but some are remodeled into cafe/cute shops. Charming cafe/shop suddenly appear between old mercantile houses. There are various cute shops, cozy cafes or yummy restaurants and cheep kimono shop, etc, etc. You can enjoy not only sightseeing but also shopping, eating. If you want to take rest, I will guide you to these cafe and restaurants(you need pay your meal expense). 한국어도 합니다. *One notes :Pls. do NOT disturb inhabits during hidden paths walking. Granpa and granma still live in Machiya(mercantile houses).
Hi! I’m Chieko:-D I live in this area over 25 years and love here. And I'm a member of Karahori community map editions voluntary group. I offer community trip as map editions group. So I know all highlights in here and can guide you on off the beaten paths that are not on guidebook. Off the beaten paths are like maze and unique. Some are open for tourists, some are private but no indications. I know all paths that we can walk thought there are not indications. And there are many MACHIYA( old mercantile houses) remained from 15DC. Some old houses have been renovated into cafe/shop. Almost of all shop masters are my friends, they may recommend you something special in their shops. Let's enjoy together.

This area is only 15mins from modern downtown Shinsaibashi, but atmosphere is total different. There are various attractive points. Movie shooting spots, literature points, e.g novelist museum. And there are many unique shops, cute cafe and restaurants, e.g. cheap Kimono shop, Japanese tea shop cute accessory shops. *One notes :Pls. do NOT disturb inhabits during hidden paths walking. Granpa and granma still live in Machiya(mercantile houses)
