Full description
Explore the hidden gem of Shinsekai with your guides and discover the real Osaka. Osaka’s Shinsekai district is a vibrant place combining modern and traditional cuisine. Fill your belly with some of the best food you will have in Japan. Discover hidden, original establishments which have been chosen by two local expert guides. Wander in and around the markets that serve traditional Osakan food for an authentic local experience.  Make your way to the first eatery, a takoyaki, or battered octopus balls, stall. Then visit an Izakaya restaurant and sample some authentic Osakan kitsune Udon along with japanese style chicken wings. Also taste the locally invented kushikatsu, which are lightly deep-fried vegetables, meats and seafood on skewers. Head off the beaten path and visit a cosy, traditional Japanese restaurant you will get dishes of mouthwatering nikudoufu or beef and tofu stew, original yakitori or skewered beef assortments, plus an alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverage. Then visit specialized delicious gyoza dumpling establishment. The last dishes of the night will be at a unique Japanese eatery.

This was such an incredibly insightful, unique experience of Osaka. I would particularly recommend this for well travelled people who understand that there other layers to every city. Andy is informative, engaging and is a natural story teller. His humor & wit add to this well rounded tour. I recommend going to the dinner after as we continued the fun with delicious food. Thank you

It was so much fun! I ended up being the only one on the tour which made it an even more personalized experience! It was a nice mix of tourist hotspots and local hangouts. Shoutout to my guide Luca who not only showed me all the delicious food but also added in cultural facts and personal stories which made the experience even more enjoyable! 10/10 would recommend, especially if you are a solo traveler like me! It is a lot of food so make sure to come hungry!

Kevin was our guide. He was on time, good with info, saw parts of japan and tried food we would not have, if not for this tour. He was very easy to talk to and looked after us. If you want a good, safe English speaking tours - would highly recommend.
