Small-group Kansai Soul Tour in Osaka including Japanese Snacks
From US$75.97
Overview

Experience the best of Osaka food, without any language barriers on this small-group tour. You’ll have an English-speaking guide to recommend local specialties such as takoyaki (octopus balls), and take you to locally loved, hidden food spots. You’ll also see the city’s top attractions as you walk around, and a limited group size means you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.

What to Expect

Start your Osaka food extravaganza by meeting your guide and heading to Kuromon Ichiba Market, which is well-known for its colorful stalls and hole-in-the-wall restaurants.

Next, stroll along Sennichimae Doguyasuji shopping street and then continue to Osaka’s downtown area of Shinsekai. Your guide will provide insights about the city along the way, and point out important landmarks like Tsutenkaku Tower and Luna Park. Try tantalizing local staples such as kushi-katsu (skewers of deep-fried meat or vegetables) and learn about the many izakaya (Japanese pubs) you’ll see.

Neon lights illuminate the busy streets of Dotonbori—one of Osaka’s most famous areas. Here, your guide will point out the enormous mechanical crab (a popular photo spot) and take you to sample takoyaki (fried octopus balls). Your tour ends at Namba station in Dotonbori.
