Overview
Experience the best of Osaka food, without any language barriers on this small-group tour. You’ll have an English-speaking guide to recommend local specialties such as takoyaki (octopus balls), and take you to locally loved, hidden food spots. You’ll also see the city’s top attractions as you walk around, and a limited group size means you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.
Highlights
  • Small-group tour limited to 12 people for a personalized experience
  • Japanese snacks are included in your tour price
  • Discover hidden restaurants that would be difficult for tourists to find
  • No menu problems—your guide will order for you and translate
What to Expect
Start your Osaka food extravaganza by meeting your guide and heading to Kuromon Ichiba Market, which is well-known for its colorful stalls and hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Next, stroll along Sennichimae Doguyasuji shopping street and then continue to Osaka’s downtown area of Shinsekai. Your guide will provide insights about the city along the way, and point out important landmarks like Tsutenkaku Tower and Luna Park. Try tantalizing local staples such as kushi-katsu (skewers of deep-fried meat or vegetables) and learn about the many izakaya (Japanese pubs) you’ll see. Neon lights illuminate the busy streets of Dotonbori—one of Osaka’s most famous areas. Here, your guide will point out the enormous mechanical crab (a popular photo spot) and take you to sample takoyaki (fried octopus balls). Your tour ends at the original departure point.

The tour was on the second last night of my 18 days in Japan and I wish now I had experienced an Urban Adventure elsewhere as well. Fumiko was an extremely pleasant, thoughtful and generous guide; excellent English and a great sense of humour and our group really enjoyed her

Thank you LWtravels20590 for your comment and very sorry for what happened at the tour. Generally we have a simple, strict protocol to follow in emergency situations but this time it seems it didn't work well. Osaka team will learn from the lesson and improve our skills to cope with safety matters. Thanks again and Kindest regards, Kohei Tamaki / Kansai Manager
