Half day in Osaka with a local

Dotonbori Road, a hilariously wild sense of humour and probably a food coma.

What you'll do

Osaka’s whirlwind of chaotic shopping, lantern-lit mazes of izakaya bars and frenetic canal-side entertainment districts is a lot to get to grips with, but your local insider will make sure you make the most of your 4 hours together. Discover locals-only Osaka, where fishermen is a delicacy and vendors consider bargaining to be a traditional art form. You could want to let off some steam with the locals in a sento bathhouse, before swapping nudity for cosplay in Nipponbashi, one of Osaka’s fashion and otaku hotspots, where a geek-culture obsession comes as standard. Our hosts will show you that the best way around Osaka is on the canals and that despite its futuristic exterior, the city’s trendiest music still comes on vinyl…

Where you’ll go

You’ll get to see the very best of Osaka, from Shinsekai, a burgeoning former slum where the Tsūtenkaku Tower gleams from above, or nearby Dōtonbori, the entertainment district where neon lights shimmer off the waters of the canals, exposing a spectacular array of experiences. There’s just so much to see and do in Osaka, but with one of our hosts leading the way, you’ll experience the very best of this remarkable city in just four hours. Witty, chatty locals greet you at every turn in Tenma, a bustling nightlife quarter near Osaka Castle, and in Ura Namba, a central district famed for its eateries, sake flows as easily as the conversation does. Plus, you can always be sure that your host will have a trick (and a snack!) up their sleeve...
