Our preventing COVID-19

We take measures against infection from COVID-19.
We wear face masks and guide you with a portable microphone to keep a mutual distance.
Before we start our guide activities, we always sterilize our hands and take our temperature to make sure that we are not infected.

About OVGC

We are members of the Osaka Volunteer Guide Council (OVGC). We are all fascinated by the history of Osaka Castle and the ups and downs it has been through. Our daily activities are devoted to conveying the message of the castle's various virtues. We all wear a green uniform like a traditional Japanese happi coat.
Please feel free to talk to us when you find us in Osaka Castle park and we’ll guide you at your request for free*.
For inquiries, please email us at ovgc0804@gmail.com.

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