  • Osaka: Local Food Beyond Dotonbori Small Group Tour

    1. Osaka: Local Food Beyond Dotonbori Small Group Tour

    Taste the big city, bright lights energy in the famous Dotonbori and Namba districts, then immerse yourself in local food and culture as you explore the areas where the locals play, and visitors almost never do. With dinner and drinks included and a group size of no more than six, it's going to be more like a night out with friends than one of those assembly line-style tours. All guides speak excellent or native English, have lived in Osaka forever or at least many years, and absolutely love the city. Your evening starts in the heart of Dotonbori, right on Ebisu Bridge, best known as the perfect vantage point to see the "Running Man" gargantuan LCD sign, plus all the other giant signs and screens that wallpaper this area. Think Times Square in New York, with all the buzz but none of the cars. Pass all the big highlights, then duck into some narrow side streets steeped in history. Hundr...

Chat with your guide about life in the city and its many traditions. Feel more confident getting around and exploring on your own by the end of your experience.

    Andrew was knowledgeable of the area and the Japanese culture. My main concern was to get acclimated of the area I was in and locating the meeting points of my future tours. Very helpful. I highly recommend hiring a private guide upon arrival, especially if you’re a solo traveler. Two hours is too short of time if you want to go to various sites. Depending on where you’re staying. I was in Umeda. Thank you Andrew for your fine hospitality!
