Getting to the Hotel

Most tourists tend to use the Midosuji Line to get to the hotel. So, for that reason, the directions here will be from Namba Station by way of the Midosuji Line.

2. You should see "Namba Walk" written on the signs overhead (and pass a cosmetics store, KITTO, on your left)
3. Continue through Namba Walk until you get to exit B21. The escalators will be on the right. Take them up.
4. Once you get to the top, you should see the entrance to a shopping street with a Bic Camera on your right. Go down this street.

Making Takoyaki in Osaka

Let's make takoyaki, the staple comfort food of Osaka. You can then enjoy it piping hot. For the takoyaki making experience, the necessary ingredients and equipment will be provided at every table, enough for 20 per person. A leaflet with pictures and instructions will be prepared in 4 languages: Japanese, English, Korean, and Chinese. On top of that, you can enjoy the all-you-can-eat "Vege-Smile Buffet." This includes over 30 dishes with tempura, pork, and many vegetable-based side dishes. The menu changes on a month-to-month basis. Enjoy a great lunch at a great value.

Special Memories with Nagi

When it comes to Osaka, one thing you can't miss is the takoyaki. Osaka is known throughout Japan for this dish, and not many people outside of the area normally make it themselves.
As such, Nagi would like to invite you to join its Lunch Buffet with Takoyaki Making Experience, where you can enjoy learning how to make your own takoyaki, as well as dining all-you-can-eat on various Japanese dishes.
Why not bring along friends and loved ones to create special memories of Osaka together with Nagi?
