The Kansai region is famous for being the original source of several Japanese dishes, including okonomiyaki pancakes (the original Osakan soul food), and even fugu, the toxic pufferfish that only trained professionals are allowed to prepare. Your host will lead you to hidden culinary gems like Hanakujira in Fukishima, where fishy oden stew has been perfected, and Dontonbori’s famous Hozen-ji Yokocho (street food alley), where katsudon, or breaded pork cutlets, are served hot and fresh! You might even discover that the best sushi in Japan can be found at a funazushi restaurant, where ancient Kyoto-style fermented fish is considered a delicacy. Wash it down with some sake or green tea, and try to find room for some wagashi confections!
Join your host on a culinary adventure through Osaka’s famous food districts, discovering just why they call this the Nation’s Kitchen. Feast on delicious okonomiyaki savory pancakes in Namba, a prime entertainment district, or indulge in the Kansai region’s unique hako zushi - box-shaped sushi made with vinegary rice - at the bustling Central Wholesale Market, where restaurants get their fresh produce. Osaka is a hub of Kansai regional cuisine, and it’s also known as ‘Kuidaore City’, literally translating to ‘the city where one ruins oneself with food’. With your host by your side, you’ll be able to taste the finest Kobe beef, the crispiest takoyaki squid balls, or Kansai’s own tofu-infused take on udon noodles. Yum!
