Tour Information

The Choice! 2 Plans: Choose The One That’s Right For You!

Whether you like to travel alone or with a couple of friends, our open tours are a great option if you’re looking to socialize and meet new people from around the world. If you’re not, then you can enjoy time amongst yourselves with our private tours (from 4 people).

The First Shot! Getting Things Started With A Local Favorite

First, we’re going to meet up with our guide and get acquainted with the other travelers!! We will start the night off with the popular local Osakan food, kushikatsu. Kushikatsu is a fried skewer with bite-sized meat and vegetables. Kushi refers to the bamboo skewers and katsu refers to the deep-fried meat cutlet. The golden brown color of Kushikatsu will make your mouth water!! Goes great with a nice, cold beer!!

The Chaser! Taking A Quiet Stroll Out To The Temple!

Next, we’ll take a little break and go for a walk out to Hozenji Temple and some other hidden spots. It’s definitely a trip at night, going through the secluded alleyways, stopping off for a peaceful detour at the temple, and then emerging into the busy main street of Namba. It’s a stark contrast that’ll leave you thinking “Whoa, when did that happen?” And of course, you or you can have our guide take all the pictures and videos you like along the way.

The Second Round! Back Into The Fray With Some Sake!

After that, we will head to the second Izakaya where we’ll try more delicious local food such as yakitori (chicken skewers), okonomiyaki (a savory pancake made with a variety of ingredients), takoyaki (a battered ball-shaped snack made with octopus), and more! The latter two are particularly well-known specialties of Osaka. Down that with some Japanese Sake and that’ll raise it to the next level!!

The Finisher!! Ending It Strong With Stop #3 !

For many Osakans, the night doesn’t end with only one stop. There’s always an afterparty. And of course that means more drinks and more food. That’s why we’ve got one more stop to make. For the third and final venture, we’re going to head into the back streets of Namba (UraNamba) where lots of older, traditional restaurant and bars are located. You’ll be able to have sushi, sashimi, karaage (Japanese fried chicken), and plenty of meat!!

The Runback! A Different Experience The Next Time Around

Namba is a famous entertainment district that offers a wide variety of dining options. As such, there are only so many places we can take you in one night. To keep things fresh, the Izakayas won’t be exactly the same every time. If you come back for more, we hope to still provide you with something new and different.

Guide Introduction

    Hello. My name is Ryota. Please call me "Ryo" for short. I'm a government-lisenced tour guide-interpreter. Soon after I was born in chiba prefecture, I was taken to Kansai region where I grew up. I love music, history, and the Japanese culture, but science is not my cup of tea. I'll pull out all the stops to lead you to a deep insight into the Japanese cultural aspect like the difference between a buddhist temple and a shinto shrine and the Japanese way of thinking. I assure you that my guiding will knock your socks off. You can take my word for it.
