Experience Details
Nagoya–a captivating city in Japan's Aichi Prefecture–is a treasure trove of cultural heritage and culinary wonders. One such wonder is the Osu Kannon district! Located in Nagoya's Naka Ward, this district is a captivating thoroughfare that resonates with history, culture, commerce, and a vibrant tapestry of experiences. It's not just a street; it's a microcosm of Nagoya's essence, a place where tradition and modernity unite. At the heart of the Osu Kannon district stands the Osu Kannon Temple, an ancient Buddhist temple that traces its origins back to the Kamakura period. The temple's history is intertwined with the city's own, surviving fires, wars, and transformations. Your experience starts here! Explore the Osu Kannon district and temple–where you’ll participate in omairi (worshipping at shrines and temples). Move onto the historical part of the district, where you’ll try 5 different regional street foods… Miso Oden: A heartwarming regional stew featuring an assortment of ingredients (tofu, daikon radish, and fish cakes) simmered in a savory miso broth Takoyaki: Piping-hot balls made of batter and pieces of octopus Taiyaki: Fish-shaped sweets made of batter and stuffed with filling (red bean paste, custard) Dim Sum: Nagoya’s pork-filled version of this traditional Chinese street food Japanese Sweet Potato with (or without) ice cream Throughout the tour, your guide will provide insights into the history and traditions of the Osu district, enhancing your understanding and appreciation for the local culture. Please note that the itinerary is subject to change based on the availability of the local food stalls and unforeseen circumstances–but never fear! Your guide will ensure the best possible experience and communicate with you from start to finish.
