What you'll do

Experience a side of Osaka's food scene most visitors don't get to see! We'll take a fun walk through two interesting and exciting old neighborhoods, stopping at three different standing restaurant bars ("tachinomi"), where we'll sample a variety of small dishes. You'll get to immerse yourself in the fun and flavorful world of what could loosely be called Japanese tapas. At the same time, you'll also get to try different drinks (three drinks included) and inevitably meet some of the colorful locals. It's a chance to get a locals-only perspective on Japanese cuisine and culture. The super tasty food will scratch all your taste buds, but rest assured this Experience also has much cultural merit! The neighborhoods we walk through have centuries of history, ties to Kyoto, and lots of stories to tell. But we ultimately focus more on the present than the past, with stops along the way to show how people shop and entertain themselves in these parts of town today. Your Experience will be led by either Kevin or Levy, but were both equally thrilled to show you the best of Osaka! Note: Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, but please feel free to inquire if you are concerned.

Kevin

I'm Kevin, an American who founded the Pinpoint Traveler trip-planning platform, and I've lived in Japan for 10 years, most of them in Osaka. Here I've learned fluent Japanese, thus opening up a world of enchanting local sights and tiny restaurants with great food! Levy is my good friend and a fellow Osaka booster, also with the Japanese ability and mastery of the food, drink, and cultural landscape to give you the greatest of evenings! One or both us may have the pleasure of helping you escape the Namba-Shinsaibashi tourist circuit and dive headlong into the local scene instead.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Tenma, a district in central Osaka, and end our tour in Kyobashi, which is just a few minutes away by train (train fare included in your experience). The standing bar-restaurants we go to may vary by night, but they have all been very thoroughly vetted -- and enjoyed!
