Know More about this tour

Just around sunset, we'll meet at Tenma Station (on the JR loop line, just one stop from Osaka Station/Umeda), which puts us right in the middle of a very old part of Osaka. First, we'll head to neighboring Ogimachi Park, taking in the views and getting oriented. Then it's time to dive in to Tenma proper! While walking around, your guide will explain the history and context of the area, and all about the culture that thrives here today.

After about 45minutes of walking around, we'll stop for our first drink and bit of food for the night, in the heart of Tenma. Food will vary by restaurant and your tastes over the course of the evening, but typical dishes include "kushi katsu" (fried food on sticks), "dote nikomi" (slow cooked beef... parts), "tonpei yaki" (a grilled pork and egg dish), and some healthier things as well -- promise! A bit more walking around Tenma brings us to another great eating and drinking spot, quite different from the first one.

After we've thoroughly surveyed Tenma, we'll hop on a train for the short ride to Kyobashi, where the vibe is a bit more raucous, but equally fun! It's an old area, filled to the brim with character.In Kyobashi, we'll walk around about 10 minutes before stopping at a final "standing bar" for more food and drink.

Osaka is famous for its food, and you're going to see it all tonight! Except takoyaki and okonomiyaki, because you can eat those on your own or with some more pedestrian tour! :)

Your tour will take you to three different open/standing bars that also serve food and the two neighborhoods of Tenma and Kyobashi.The tour includes at least a five small plates of food (a solid dinner's worth),threedrinks, and the train ticket between the two neighborhoods. Additional drinks can be purchased, and some nice Japanese whiskies may also be available too!

  • Fun experience. Unexpected sites and eateries. Our tour guide was delightful.

  • Dylan took us to some great food spots in Osaka that I would never have came across or tried without his help and guidance! I also appreciated how he depicted Osaka and just Japan itself with it’s pros and cons, giving a true picture of the culture.

  • A great way of enjoying the Japanese local culture. Highly recommended to anyone who want to try the true local delicacies in Osaka.

  • The food tour was on the first night we arrived in Osaka and it was great to be shown a few restaurants we definitely would never have found by ourselves and try food we normally wouldn’t. Dylan was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable

  • Dylan was brilliant company. Was popular that night so tour was split in two. Kevin took first group which looked fun but it was extra special to have a private tour just the two of us. Highly recommend. Dylan gave real insight to places we couldn’t possibly have found as tourists.

  • We had a fantastic time with our guide Dylan. He was knowledgeable, fun and we felt like we were hanging out with a friend. Plus, we visited some small restaurants we wouldn't have found... and ate some delicious food. Highly recommended.

  • Kevin was an interesting person with some good random information about Osaka. We wouldn't have gone to this area if we hadn't booked on the tour. I enjoyed the evening, however at the price it is very expensive for something that you could just do by yourself.

  • Dylan was an excellent guide! He gave us great insights into the Osaka culture and lifestyle. All the restaurants we went to were ones that all the locals go to and everyone was very friendly, and of course, all of the food was absolutely amazing! Having been on multiple food tours in multiple Asian countries, I gotta say this one was the most fun. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend!

  • Dylan was our tour guide and he definitely did his job well!

    He brought us through the Tenma district of Osaka and we had a lot of good food. But most valuable, we learned more about the Japanese lifestyle and culture. Osaka people we met on our tour were super friendly! They're the kind of people you can easily have a friendly drink with!

    I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone wanting to experience real Osaka hospitality.

  • I would highly recommend this tour! We would never have found the wonderful places we went to on our own. Dylan gave us so much information about Osaka. The food, the culture and just made the entire experience fun. He’s also “magical” with cards. We would go definitely go again!
