Flight arrivals are often delayed by one or two hours. However, our customer support team monitors flight arrival times and is aware of any delays.
In such cases, we adjust the meeting time to match the actual arrival time, so you can rest assured.

4, Driver Waits Until You Come Out

Your driver will be there, guaranteed

Some taxi companies cancel bookings if time passes since the meeting time, causing drivers to leave without the customer. But our drivers stay until they meet the customer, as long as we can stay in touch through WhatsApp.

Itami Airport is conveniently located in the heart of Osaka, offering easy access to the city. We hope your upcoming stay will be truly wonderful.

One of Osaka’s charms is its culinary culture. Known as the “Kitchen of Japan,” Osaka is a paradise for food lovers. You can savor local flavors at numerous dining establishments throughout the city. In particular, dishes like “okonomiyaki” and “takoyaki” are iconic to Osaka and offer a delicious taste of the local cuisine. Areas around Tsutenkaku in Shinsekai, Dotonbori, and Namba are filled with delightful dining options, so be sure to explore them.

Moreover, Osaka is a city steeped in history and culture. Osaka Castle, built during the Warring States period, holds immense historical significance. Inside the castle, you’ll find museums where you can learn about the era of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the lives of Japanese samurai. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the beautiful gardens surrounding Osaka Castle. Additionally, Osaka boasts art museums, theaters, and traditional temples and shrines, providing a wide range of sightseeing opportunities.

For those who love shopping, Osaka is a recommended destination. Shopping areas like Shinsaibashi and Amerikamura offer a wealth of fashion items and unique trinkets. They are perfect places to find souvenirs to take home. The “Glico Sign” over Dotonbori Canal is an iconic symbol of Osaka and a great spot for taking photos. Osaka’s appeal extends to its natural beauty as well. Public spaces like Osaka Castle Park and Tennoji Park feature stunning natural landscapes. During cherry blossom season, you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing (hanami) in these parks, combining the beauty of flowers with Japanese culture.

Osaka is known for its friendly locals, so we encourage you to interact with them and experience the warmth of Osaka’s people. Meeting local residents can add a deeper dimension to your travel memories. Lastly, don’t forget to indulge in Osaka’s art and entertainment offerings. You can explore contemporary art and traditional performing arts at art museums and theaters, immersing yourself in Osaka’s creativity. Osaka is a city of diverse attractions, and we believe your stay will be filled with memorable experiences.
