Fancy a traditional tea ceremony? Or perhaps you’d prefer some bar hopping between tachinomiya, standing pubs where sake and craft beer go hand in hand with friendly conversation? Nakazakicho might seem cliquey, but it has something for everyone. Even if you’re the furthest thing from a hipster, you’ll appreciate the culture and historicity of this densely-packed ‘hood, home to some of Osaka’s top hangouts, like Club Noon - it’s a trendy cafe by day, but after nightfall, it mutates into a unique party experience, with vibrations from the JR Kyoto train line above adding to the crazy atmosphere. Your host will also ensure you don’t miss the real secret gems, like hidden vintage stores and art galleries. The longer you look, the more you see…
Welcome to Nakazakicho, where greenery-lined alleyways shelter a hipster haven teeming with repurposed historic buildings and kooky cafes that give off such a bohemian vibe, you’re likely to leave with a beard and several tattoos. Your local host will lead you along these eclectic pathways, uncovering hidden gems like cat cafes full of feline friends and specialty stores stocking everything from fine art to organic granola. The tiny neighborhood is home to all things cool and trendy in Osaka, so it’s no surprise that the quirky streets boast plenty of boutique tea houses and classy izakaya bars overflowing with local rebels. Here, renovations have maintained authenticity, so take in all the nostalgia and culture you need with your host!
