What you'll do

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…
