This tour is for foodies the world over.
The wonderful thing about Japan is the food is generally very regional. Although a lot of the dishes remain the same, the way they are prepared are totally different in each part of the country.
Osaka is no exception in it’s fame for gastronomical delights and Dotonburi is famous throughout Japan for it’s amazing street food options.
These little alleyway are littered with bars and hole in the wall food stands interspersed with the occasional ramen bar.
As Japanese houses tend to be small with little space for a huge kitchen with all amenities, plus the fact Japanese work long hours, there’s usually not a lot of time left for grocery shopping or cooking in the day. This is the main reason many Japanese eat out virtually every day (and why almost no home is equipped with a dish washer)
Not only will we eat our tummies full of all the delights Osaka has to offer, of course you will get a chance to pose in front of the famous ‘Glico running man’ neon ad and wave bye bye to the giant mechanical crab for which the area is know. While we eat your guide will explain some of the history of Dotonbori area and we’ll even visit the famous Hozenji Yokocho to bring good luck to the rest of your trip.
You might have gotten a bit curious about what’s on offer food-wise. We will not reveal all our secrets here, but some of the delicacies that will pass your palet will be kushikatsu meat skewers and don’t and of course freshy fried takoyaki octopus dumplings dripping in barbecue sauce.
