What you'll do

Local Food means local culture. Wonder where to eat in Osaka? and How to order in Japanese?

We will meet up to enjoy learning a essential/Survival Japanese class while drinking coffee and enjoying typical or traditional Japanese snacks, having learnt some useful Japanese, I will take you to a local hidden izagayas(Japanese style bar) , where you will only encounter locals. You can try to greeting the waiters and order food with the Japanese you just learnt right away and please try to talk with the chefs and locals there! I will also suggest some typical food in Osaka.You can only order by Japanese , because they will not speak any ENGLISH. don't worry, i will keep helping you to speak more in the restaurant, and it's a fast to learn a language in a real setting! So Just image you live in Japan !

When I travel to other countries, I like local small restaurants where only locals go, because its always fun! I am very happy to meet anyone of you from all over the world! and show you to izagaya here in Osaka.  

It's not your fist time in Japan? wanna learn more than just survival Japanese? I would recommend this 2 hours experience+ 1 lunch experience.

Hi, Nice to meet you! This is Naomi. I am also a host of airnbn apartment in Namba , Osaka.

Let's check out the real flavor in Osaka together. I am very interested in both eating and cooking since I was kid. I've moved to Osaka 4 years ago. I am a teacher of English and Japanese, I studied Spanish in Univerisity, and also a pro on food, 3 years ago I passed the exam and got the official Japanese national patisseries Certificate.

In my spare time, my hobby is to find some yummy restaurants. I am not from Osaka, but i'm confident of my restaurant list. because my local Osaka friends would even ask me to share with them my list of restaurants. I also like to learn how to cook traditional family cuisine until now, I've learnt plenty Osaka local recipes from Osaka local mothers and grandmothers. ;) Before I moved to Osaka, I've been staying in Spain, Mexico, Venezuela, and China. I've been travelled to almost 30 countries.I can speak English, Japanese and Spanish , Chinese Fluently.

I like talking with people from around the world and sharing my experience living in Osaka with them. I hope i can meet with you and share my experience soon!

Naomi did a wonderful job of breaking down survival Japanese phrases. Her teaching techniques were very effective which allowed us to pick up the phrases quickly. She also accommodated our dietary needs when picking the izakaya! She is very friendly, and knowledgeable in teaching and Osaka culture!

Naomi proves that a language learning app cannot replace personal instruction. She taught us a page full of useful phrases and provided the context that an app leaves out. Her skillful teaching plus passion for Osaka food makes for a rewarding experience.
