The Experience

This experience will take you deep into the quirky bars with unique music styles!

Nanba and Shinsaibashi areas of Osaka are teeming with unique and alluring bars. Most of them are tucked away, hidden in places like the Mizono Building that only locals know about. Which is also why Mizono will be our main stage for the night.

Deep into the backstreets of Nanba - where only the ones in the know go

Tucked away in the backstreets of “Ura Nanba” lies the Mizono Building. This inconspicuous, slightly Showa Period-esque building is home to over 20 quirky bars and often referred to as the birthplace of Osaka subcultures. Only a handful of locals know about it, so it does not get any deeper than this!

▼As we exit the subway station “Nipponbashi” we take a quick turn at the Kuromon Market and venture deep into the area.

Grilled offal, Yakitori grilled chicken, Okonomiyaki and more local cuisine await

At our first stop we will try the local delicacies and fill up with energy for the rest of our trip.

▼The grilled offal at the “Sakagami” restaurant is so delicious that even those who don’t like offal say it is delicious!

More than 20 unique, quirky bars at Misono!

Misono Building, also referred to as the birthplace of Osaka subcultures, was built in the golden days of Showa as a commercial building. However as times went by more and more unique bars popped up into existence at Misono. Today it is one of the most underground places that even few locals know about and visit.

▼With its retro Showa Period style, Misono simply screams “unique”

Popular among the subculture fans - rock pub “Hakugei”

Our first stop will be the rock bar Hakugai, well equipped with its own stage for live performances. Owned and ran by an actual celebrity, Hakugai is quite popular among fans of subcultures. Most of the music played here are songs performed by friends and acquaintances of the owner, making for a great conversation starter!

Anime song bar “Digital Cafe Script”

Our final stop will be the bar “Digital Cafe Script” known for playing mostly popular songs from Anime. Even though it styles itself as a cafe, the wide choice or tasty sweet cocktails make it also a bar - and a very popular one with the ladies at that.
