Experience Details
In the city of kuidaore (meaning, “eat oneself into ruin”), street food is taken seriously, especially in Shinsekai Osaka. The Shinsekai district is built around Tsutenkaku Tower, which is considered the Eiffel Tower of Japan, but rather than a Parisian feel the atmosphere is more akin to that of a fairground. The neighborhood is a super local attraction in Osaka with retro and nostalgic vibes, referencing the early 1900s to the 1960s. You can find some of Osaka’s famous street food specialties here, like kushikatsu (battered and fried skewers of meat, seafood, or vegetables) and takoyaki, at restaurants and shops that operate for 24 hours a day, though the area truly becomes the most vibrant after dark when the streets are aglow with color. The Shinsekai Osaka Street Food Tour will give you an inside peek into the local restaurants and shops here, and the flourishing culture of street food. Both daytime and evening tours are available, so this street food tour will fit any schedule. You can choose to see the vibrant side of Shinsekai in the evening, glowing with multicolored lanterns and signs, or take a more leisurely daytime stroll through the charming district during the daytime. Either way, you’ll get to try local dishes at 5 food stops while hearing about Shinsekai’s history and food culture from a local expert, and find out why Osaka is known as “The Nation’s Kitchen.”
