Great backstreet food tour!

Hiro was a great guide with everything meticulously mapped out ahead of time. We loved trying Oden from a family owned place that had about 6 seats. We went to a great, small Yakitori place with fun and lively staff and guests. We had Takoyaki and Gyoza at different places. The kids stopped to do archery and cork guns. We also went to an Udon place and a restaurant where you can catch your own fish…if you desire. Lastly, Hiro treated us to dessert-taiyaki. The tour was the best way to spend one of our last nights in Osaka. I would highly recommend!! Thank you.

Hiroki D.

To Olivia and her lovely family, Thank you for leaving wonderful comments. I wanted you to enjoy Japan more than ever. It was my pleasure to hear that way more than I thought. Lastly, there is more than you ate in Japan. Someday, you will come back and try other local foods. Thank you very much from my heart.

Osaka Minami Gastronomic world (Kuromon Market, Dotombori)

8 hours

First I take you to Namba Yasaka Shrine. Whatever you say, the most eye-catching thing at Yasaka Shrine in Osaka is a Giant Emaden in the shape of lion mask. I show you Doguyasuji and Kuromon market. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Popular foods are "Konamon" such as Okonomiyaki. or a Japanese-style pancake grilled on an iron plate.
