Osaka, Japan

Experience hosted by Tamaki & Team

What you'll do

Get ready to enjoy Osaka's nightlife scene, just like a local. I am a born and raised Osaka native, and I can show you the ins and outs of a hidden area known as Ura Namba—literally meaning "back" or "secret". This area includes some of the best places to eat and drink, and is a full-on local experience. I have three restaurants lined up for you. First, we are going to an Izakaya bar to try my recommendations from a huge range of food which goes perfectly with beer! Second. we will try Osaka soul food, Kushikatsu. Lastly, we will go to a Sake bar to try out several kinds of Sake. Recharge from your travels with a chance to kick back and soak in Osaka's good vibes. All the drinks and food are included! Infants (0~3yrs old) can join this tour for free.

Hi, I’m Tamaki. I manage the Kansai area-based tours for Experience+. Our team consists of some members, Chisato, Asami, and Wako! We all are passionate about travel and have a deep curiosity for finding local places and hidden gems that travelers would have a difficult time finding without the help of locals. We all speak great English and Japanese (and a few other languages among us), so we hope to be the bridge for your communication with Osaka locals as well. We are excited to show you all around our favorite spots, including some of the coolest, lesser-known locations. Learn more about our services here: https://medium.com/@explusjapan

Where you'll be

People around the world love Osaka's city districts because they're thriving with food and culture. Throughout the year many people crowd its streets but still don't know which spots are the best for good food and even better atmosphere. We'll hit the streets of the Ura Namba area. This hidden gem is brimming with exciting mysteries, but with a local guide along, you'll discover a cornucopia of bars and tasty food hubs.

We had a really fun evening! I loved the sake bar/ tasting and the Japanese pickled veges. Keiko / Waku was an excellent host!

This experience was the best. We loved all the places our guide took us and she also showed us a few other local hot spots. We had a great time and learned so much about the local culture

Our guide, Wako, brought us to a few local food places that we wouldn’t have found out about on our own! She even brought us to a street lined with shops selling kitchenware, and it was an unique experience for us. She impressed us with her enthusiasm and passion for local food, and we enjoyed the food tour very much!

We had an amazing time on this tour! Our guide Wako, was great! She was very knowledgable and brought us to some very cool places! We definitely would not have been able to do this on our own. We met some great people, and Wako even stayed with us after the tour ended at the last place to help us order sake. Overall 5/5 and would highly recommended this tour to others.

Our guide for this Tour was Wako. She was so excited about being able to share with us the food and culture that it was contagious. I was exposed to new dishes that I would have never known to order and some, I must be honest, i would not have order due to the description. This experience has open my palette and that is always a great thing when you get to experience new things, meet new people and just enjoy and have fun in a new place. When I am back in Japan I would definitely look up again these tour and experiences.
