Overview
Join us for a just slightly offbeat, fully all-inclusive night tour of Tenma and Kyobashi, two of Osaka's most well-known local food and drink areas! You'll get to eat typical Osaka food, have a few drinks, frolic with the locals, and have all sorts of fun along the way! Your guide will be a native English speaker with the fluent Japanese to take you deep into the local scene. This small group tour (6 guests or less -- and it usually is less), combines history with adventure, as you explore the nooks and crannies of these very old parts of this awesome city. You're sure to have a great time getting to know the REAL Osaka.
What to Expect
Just around sunset, we'll meet at Tenma Station (on the JR loop line, just one stop from Osaka Station/Umeda), which puts us right in the middle of a very old part of Osaka. First, we'll head to neighboring Ogimachi Park, taking in the views and getting oriented. Then it's time to dive in to Tenma proper! While walking around, your guide will explain the history and context of the area, and all about the culture that thrives here today.

After about 45 minutes of walking around, we'll stop for our first drink and bit of food for the night, in the heart of Tenma. Food will vary by restaurant and your tastes over the course of the evening, but typical dishes include "kushi katsu" (fried food on sticks), "dote nikomi" (slow cooked beef... parts), "tonpei yaki" (a grilled pork and egg dish), and some healthier things as well -- promise! A bit more walking around Tenma brings us to another great eating and drinking spot, quite different from the first one.

After we've thoroughly surveyed Tenma, we'll hop on a train for the short ride to Kyobashi, where the vibe is a bit more raucous, but equally fun! It's an old area, filled to the brim with character. In Kyobashi, we'll walk around about 10 minutes before stopping at a final "standing bar" for more food and drink. 

Osaka is famous for its food, and you're going to see it all tonight! Except takoyaki and okonomiyaki, because you can eat those on your own or with some more pedestrian tour! :)

Your tour will take you to three different open/standing bars that also serve food and the two neighborhoods of Tenma and Kyobashi. The tour includes at least a five small plates of food (a solid dinner's worth), three drinks, and the train ticket between the two neighborhoods. Additional drinks can be purchased, and some nice Japanese whiskies may also be available too!

Such fun!

This was one of my favorite tours on our trip to Japan! Kevin and Elton were great guides, and we ventured into a side of Osaka that we may not have seen on our own. We has so much fun! And the food was amazing!...More

Not just food and drink

Apart from three different eat/drink locales, we walked through a pachinko parlour and got a description of how a 'love hotel' functions (no walk through for that though). A small group size limit and a great guide plus more than the three hours promised equalled...More

Great tour

Went on the tour during our honeymoon. There were 4 of us total (2 couples). Had a fantastic night with our guide Nico! Great food, plenty of information and overall a very fun time. Highly recommend.

Interenting and tasty

I’d give this 5 stars if it weren’t for all the cigarette smoke I was exposed to on this tour. The food was delicious and the guide was witty, but the smoke interferes with taste and you’ll want to wash your clothes afterward. That said,...More
