Enjoy great local food, delicious drinks and boutique bars on a walking tour through the heart of Namba, Shinsaibashi and Amemura. Sample local favourites including fresh sushi, grilled yakitori and a huge range of drinks possibilities as your English speaking guide expertly navigates through the backstreets.


This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Taste Osaka, 2-9, Sennichimae, Chuo, Osaka 542-0074 Osaka Prefecture

We will meet you in the heart of Namba (detailed meeting instruction upon booking) and begin by heading on foot to a local 'izakaya' to get to know each other and sample the raucous atmosphere of downtown Osaka by night! At our first location,  we will have our first (but not last) 'Kampai' of the evening and try a range of Japanese foods including fresh sushi, grilled yakitori and the local speciality, takoyaki!

From here, your guide will steer you to a local backstreet drinking establishment for a post dinner drink where you can expect to meet some of the locals, learn a little survival drinking Japanese and discover what makes this city so famous as the nightlife centre of West Japan!

Next,  we head north past the iconic 'Glico running man' for photos before more refreshments and to see where the night takes us... often to singing our hearts out at a Karaoke bar!

I took the tour on October 27, days after restrictions have been lifted. The shops and bars are starting to reopen after a long hiatus. I had a little trepidation doing this tour as a solo traveler but there was nothing to worry about. Rodney was an excellent guide and

100% recommended! I had the opportunity to the this tour solo because of COVID and Osaka had just “opened” back up to tourism, and it was fantastic.

I have been traveling across Japan for almost two months, so coming to Osaka didn't really excite me. Well, that was until I met Rodney! Rodney's tour takes you to local food joints AND local bars - which makes it such a unique experience even if you are not a drinker. We were a small group, s...
