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! We want to take the guests to places they would certainly miss without a local's guidance.
We will take secret alleys not long after we begin the tour toward the shrine tucked out of sight from the average passerby. We will sample 'kushikatsu', a local take on yakitori and we will surprise you with a Michelin-rated street food stop for Osaka’s favorite snack – takoyaki! Next, travel down more narrow alleys and see some of the more unconventional restaurants and pubs. Your guide will then lead you to a local dinner spot. This shop is an izakaya – or local pub with seasonal dishes that will intrigue and delight.
You will enjoy yakitori, sukiyaki, tempura, local veggies, and 1 drink. This spot is very local, you will not find tourists here! Try a draft beer or nihonshu (rice wine) 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 a tasty local street food dessert! As you say farewell to your guide you can explore more on your own in this fascinating part of town.
