Experience Details
Join a group of locals for a night of fun, drinking, and takoyaki! Takoyaki is a popular street food from Osaka, made from grilled batter and octopus. If you're not a fan of octopus, worry not- there are plenty of other toppings you can add! Takoyaki is a typical party food, because it brings everyone together around the takoyaki grill. You can laugh and chat with locals and other travelers while making the takoyaki, in a casual "nomikai" setting. Nomikai's are drinking parties in Japan, usually held by groups of friends or coworkers, and is a great way to experience everyday Japanese culture! Learn how to "kanpai" with all-you-can-drink alcohol or soft drinks while cooking the takoyaki on the grill. The octopus and all the other ingredients are already prepared- all you have to do is grill it to perfection! You'll also learn about other parts of Japanese culture, like utage (chatting and playing games while drinking), origami (if you'd like to try Japanese paper folding) and ippon-jime (how to end a party with a hearty clap and "YOOO"). After the party, we will take a night walk on the way back to Shinjuku Station. You can take photos at Hanazono Shrine, Golden Gai, and Kabukicho. If you are tired from traveling or don't have time, you don't have to participate in this.
