What you can expect
Experience an unforgettable stroll through the historical streets of Osaka and spend an evening like a local, in Japan's 3rd largest city!
This 3-hour Osaka Night Food Tour will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the busy streets and the hidden, less frequented parts of Minami (South) Osaka. Starting on the bright and busy Dotonburi area we will learn about Glico man, a Filipino sprinter named Fortunato Catalon who inspired a nation and a company! Similar to Shibuya (its counterpart in Tokyo) the lights and sounds of Dotounburi often lead you astray to overly-commercialised restaurants with queues of tourists outside.We want to take our guests to places they would certainly miss without a local's guidance. We will take secret alleys, not long after we begin the tour, towards the shrine wedged out of sight from the average passerby.
We will sample Kushikatsu, (deep fried meat and veggie skewers) a local take on Yakitori. We will surprise you with a Michelin rated street food stop for Osaka’s favourite snack– Takoyaki! (a kind of grilled octopus fritter). Next, travel down a more narrow alley and see some of the more unconventional restaurants and pubs. Your guide will then lead you to alocal dinner spot. This shop is an Izakaya or local pub with seasonal dishes that will intrigue and delight. You will enjoy yakitori (grilled skewers), sukiyaki (a delicious simmered beef hotpot), tempura and other regional dishes plus 1 drink. This spot is very local, you will not find tourists here! Try a draft beer or Nihonshu (Japanese Sake)with your tasty meal.
From there, we will show you a famous building full of hidden unorthodox bars, one after another. Every 5 feet there is a new door with a new adventure to be had. This area gives you the retro, artsy feel of a very hip and very unique cluster of bars. Finally, finish off with atasty local street food dessert! As you say farewell to your guide you can explore more on your own in this fascinating part of town.
