Our happi coat

The Osaka Volunteer Guide Council (OVGC) started guide services in 1997 supported by Osaka City and the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau. We hope to share the various charms of Osaka Castle with visitors.

We offer guide services in Osaka Castle park for free*. There are a lot of attractive historical spots at the castle. We will guide you through the highlights efficiently.

We all wear a green uniform like a traditional Japanese happi coat, as shown on the left. Please feel free to talk to us when you find us there and we’ll guide you at your request for free.
For inquiries, please email us at

* Note: “Free of charge” applies only to individuals and small groups.
