What you'll do

Osaka is full of great local restaurants and that is what we want to share with You. Your evening experience begins outside Nipponbashi Station and leads into Kuromon Ichiba market, a street containing over 500 metres of lively market stalls selling Osaka’s freshest meat, fish, and vegetables. Experience downtown’s classic market culture up close, punctuated by rich aromas and the boisterous Kansai-ben(Osaka dialect) of the locals. Doguyasuji to see the infinite array of Japanese cooking utensils, as well as stopping to look at the ubiquitous ‘fake food’ selection. From here we’ll go to Dobutsuenmae and walk to Shinsekai, entering the true core of Osaka’s downtown. Dotonbori is the most famous sight in Osaka,complete with a long canal flanked with shimmering shops and restaurants, a well-known running man, and a giant mechanical crab! Dotonbori is home to endless clusters of restaurants, street vendors, bars, and pubs. We sample Osaka’s most famous food, takoyaki(fried batter balls containing octopus legs) and walk along the canal, passing ever-moving neon signs and the billowing steam of Osaka’s liveliest restaurants.If Kyoto is the heart of western Japan,Osaka is truly the soul.
