Explore Osaka like a local, through the eyes of your Japanese-Australian tour guide, Andy.
As a foreigner visiting Japan, you may be hesitant to enter the tiny bars and restaurants tucked away in narrow back alleys, especially the ones without English menus or bilingual staff to welcome you. With Andy, you’ll have a built-in interpreter and cultural guide to smooth over these interactions, and introduce you to the truly authentic gems that are hidden in plain sight amid the more generic chain restaurants.
An unforgettable dining experience, this Osaka food tour features 5 stops and 10 mouthwatering dishes. Your guide’s recommendations will include the most flavorful and iconic Japanese dishes and drinks, from local beer, Japanese sake, chuhai, highball, plum wine, cocktails, and also nonalcoholic options like soda and juice.
