What you'll do

For a truly authentic Osakan experience, you could kick things off with a butt-naked scrub down at a traditional sento, where locals freshen up before some well-deserved hashigo zake, or bar hopping, as we know it. Your local insider has the scoop on hideouts like Hozenji Yokocho and the maze of bars in Tenma, and will make up for any language barriers. The local patrons of Osaka’s izakaya will happily talk to you all night - even if you don’t speak Japanese! Your host will effortlessly order plates of dishes like kushikatsu as you pour sake for one another, then feed your sake-induced insomnia with gyoza pork dumplings and some karaoke, or end your experience slurping ramen on the way home - just like a true local!

Where you’ll go

Osaka’s reputation as Japan’s friendliest, and least conservative city, rings even truer at night - it won’t be long before you’re cheering ‘kanpai’ over sake with noisy locals in a jam-packed izakaya bar! You could explore Dōtonbori and neighboring Ura Namba, the heart of Osaka’s entertainment district where giant, animatronic signs are nothing out of the ordinary. But even here amongst the kaleidoscope of neon lights, street food joints and karaoke bars, there are surprises like Hozenji Yokocho, a narrow alleyway of tiny taverns and tachinomiya standing bars. Or perhaps head for Tenma in northern Osaka, a docile neighborhood by day that comes alive at night when the lanterns of dozens of izakaya illuminate its labyrinth of narrow lanes.
