    Highly enjoyable indept local food tour (customized and private)

    We'd like to thank our tour guides Yuta and Tad for providing us for an unforgettable and interesting tour and insight into Japanese food culture and customs. They are people from different backgrounds but share a passion for the travel industry and it shows, resulting in a highly enjoyable personalized experience and making us feel very welcome.

    As for the tour itself, we requested a customized private tour since we're somewhat familiar with Japanese cuisine and wanted to try something different than the standard yakitori, okinomiyaki, takoyaki, sushi etc.
    and wanted to taste new, uncommon and interesting things.

    These guys provided just that and more by showing us around in a more local restaurant area and visiting 3 totally different places. We also got to know a lot of background of the foods and culture. To name a few things, but not spoil everything: fried stingray fin and hoppy (local beer replacement drink).

Discover new places with your local guide!

If you’ve done your research on Osaka, then you may have heard of Temma. Maybe you’re even thinking about trying some of the many authentic, local restaurants, but their menus are only in Japanese and the staff don’t speak English...so you’re hesitant, possibly deciding against it. Or maybe, this is your first time hearing about Temma. Either way, why not come along with us for an in-depth tour and explore what this unforgettable place has to offer? Discover the charm, the energy of Temma and you may find yourself not wanting to leave.

Temma is only one station away from Umeda. It’s known for having the longest shopping street in all of Japan, Tenjinbashisuji Shopping Street! Spanning 2.6 km over 3 stations, there are more than 600 stores! But that’s not all! It’s also home to Ura Temma, a lesser-known part of town that’s a favorite for locals. If you check the map, you’ll see every nook and cranny decorated with a restaurant’s logo. It’s the perfect place for a Japanese bar hopping adventure! It may be a little cramped, but that also brings people closer together.

If you want a truly authentic Japanese experience, but don’t know where to start, then try out our tour of Temma. Go along with one of our specialists, and other travelers like yourself from all over the world. Make new friends, get to know the locals, and indulge in delicious Japanese food and sake. We’ll take you to 3 different, but authentic restaurant/bars in the short time we have together so that you can try all kinds of foods and find out why the Japanese love bar hopping so much.

Yakitori, one of Japan’s most popular foods!

When talking about what kind of food you want to go with your drinks, yakitori is almost always included as an option. Chicken is lean and packs a lot of protein, so even people on a diet don’t have to worry about holding back. It’s cheap, goes well with alcohol, can be made different ways and paired with various sauces for many flavor combinations. It’s easy to see why it’s so popular. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are some unusual options too, like tail meat, cartilage, or heart.

Taste the natural flavor of Sushi and Sashimi!

Sushi, sashimi. Hearing these two words no doubt calls to mind Japan. These days, not just Japanese, but people all over the world will say that missing out on raw fish is missing out on one of the pleasures of life. The different varieties of fish make the dish very colorful and you can’t help but take pics of it. It’s fresh, bite-sized, low calorie; there are so many great things about sushi that even if you’re full, you’ll end up ordering more and more without thinking about it. There are so many delicious, unknown seafood restaurants waiting for us!

Yakiniku, everyone’s favorite, grilled meat!

“What’s your favorite Japanese food?” No matter where they’re from, the first thing that most people think of is, without a doubt, sushi or yakiniku. Japanese people love yakiniku, some have it 2~3 times a week, even 4~5 times wouldn’t be unusual. If you want to treat yourself or celebrate a special occasion, the place to go is yakiniku. Japanese yakiniku is primarily beef. Thinly sliced cuts that seem to melt the instant you put them in your mouth make it hard to resist and insanely addicting! You can enjoy it different ways, with different sauces like soy, sesame, salt, miso, lemon, etc. You can also enjoy uniques styles depending on the restaurant. So join us on the search for the most delicious yakiniku!

A perfect end to finish!

After a night of drinking and eating out at a few places, Japanese people like to finish things off with a good helping of carbs. The usual pick is ramen, or chazuke, which is a dish combining rice and tea. Udon is also a great choice! The residual juices and oils of the meat blend perfectly for an absolutely delicious flavor.
Time always flies when you’re having fun! We hope you leave so satisfied that it won’t be goodbye, but until we meet again!
