Full description
Osaka comes alive at night and the locals know how to party. To experience the best of the city’s night time personality and discover how the locals really go out, join a like-minded host who will show that no matter what night of the week, the city will be alive and kicking 24 hours a day. Your host will choose an area of the city to explore that suits your tastes and personality. You can discover the famous entertainment districts like Namba or Umeda, the foodie district of Dotonburi, or get lost in the mazes of tiny streets in a more off the beaten track neighborhood.  Spend the evening like a true local and bar hop your way around the city in style, stopping by izakaya and tachinomiya and enjoying a beer from a konbini as the locals do. At izakaya, share delicious small plates of yakitori, gyoza, and other classic pub snacks. Join the local office workers as they sip sake or beer at a tachinomiya, which is a unique type of standing bar.  It might sound odd, but it’s legal to drink in public so for a truly local experience head to a konbini (a convenience store) and grab a cheap beer. Enjoy it as you are dazzled by the neon lights of the vibrant entertainment districts or in Triangle Park in Amemura. Then, it is time for karaoke. Sing your heart out in a karaoke bar or box, where you can hire your own room until the sun comes up or until you are in need of a steaming bowl of ramen. Join the locals queuing at 5:00 AM for a bowl of ramen before the public transport starts again.
