First, we will meet at Osu Kannon Temple, a famous place of worship in Nagoya. Don’t know the difference between a temple and a shrine? We’ll tell you all about it, so you’ll leave the temple even more enlightened! After we make a wish, we’ll start the foodie portion of this Nagoya food tour!
Our next stop is the Osu Shopping Street, which has a history of over 400 years and over 1000 shops and restaurants. We’ll taste the most delicious traditional street foods and satisfy both your sweet tooth and savory cravings. Each of the foods along the way has interesting backstories, and you’ll find out all about their origin story and significance. For example, we’ll try dishes like Goheimochi (delicious grilled rice cake), Karaage (the classic Japanese fried chicken), and Miso Kushi Katsu (deep fried skewers of meat). We’ll also get in on the bubble tea craze, which has hit Japan over the past year! Of course, you’ll also get to try local Nagoya specialties like Uiro (a traditional Japanese steamed dessert) and Agemanbo (another sweet treat).
Through food and local customs, we’ll experience the traditions and long history of Osu, tasting our way through the past and into the future. We’ll make a wish at a shrine and test our luck with an omikuji (fortune-telling paper). So, by the end of this tour, your soul and your belly will both feel satisfied.
