Experience what it feels like to be a local! This 3-hour experience focuses on standing izakayas in Kyobashi, a neighborhood filled with small, local favorite restaurants and bars. Eat and drink like a local in these hidden gem while interacting with friendly Osaka locals! With me as your local host, you will be encouraged to try old-school izakaya foods and interact with other locals in a way that you otherwise wouldn't. We will go to 2-3 standing izakayas in Kyobashi for you to try various Japanese and Osaka local foods. The places I will take you to have no English signs or menus, but not to worry, I will translate them for you! By the end of the tour, you'll be able to order your own next round of food and drinks! Come with me to eat and drink like locals, with locals.
I've been a professional tour guide in Osaka for over two years offering several other tours as well. Born and raised in Japan and lived in Osaka over 10 years. Kyobashi is my hang-out, and I often go to eat and drink in this neighborhood with my friends since I live close by, which makes me a perfect host to this experience! I am a very social person and get along with people from various backgrounds and easily be friends with them. I treat my guests like friends rather than tourists/customers. I can also give recommendations for the rest of your Osaka stay. Read the reviews to know about me and what you can experience!
This experience will be taken place in a local-oriented neighborhood called Kyobashi, located in west of Osaka city. The experience will be at standing izakayas. You will be expected to try and taste many kinds of typical izakaya/local foods that locals eat. They're not typical Japanese food you eat in a Japanese restaurant in your country. Enjoy such food with beer, shochu, and sake!
FOOD/DRINKS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE FEE. Please know that the experience will be taken place in STANDING izakayas and they are smoking-friendly. This experience may NOT be for those who have many food restrictions or are very specific about the dishes they want.
