Experience Details
Enjoy Osaka like a local, with a local! Join Yoko, a licensed tour guide and cooking teacher for a tour of her favorite spots in Osaka city. You’ll start in a “depachika” (literally “department store basement”) that’s a wonderland of food. Then, visit the longest shopping street in Osaka, Tenjinbashisuji, to take in the local color and enjoy a walkthrough. Next, it’s lunchtime. Whether you’re craving ramen, sushi, or curry, Yoko has a recommended spot for you! Let her know your preferences in advance and she’ll coordinate for you. After making a wish at Tenmangu Shrine, it’s back to Yoko’s apartment to wind down with a cup of green tea. After saying farewell, Yoko can point you in the direction of another local hotspot: Osaka Castle, where you can continue on if you wish. Tired of typical tourist experiences? Local food tour guide Yoko offers a peek inside everyday Japanese life! A Japanese culinary instructor and tour guide since 2015, Yoko has shared her knowledge with 1,200+ guests in Japan and abroad. She is a licensed tour guide, speaking Japanese, English, and Mandarin; and can’t wait to welcome you to Osaka!
