Take a street food tour of Osaka’s exciting Nanba district with one of the “only one travel” experts. Experience Osaka’s down-to-earth motto: kuidaore – “eat and enjoy life” – on a tour night for the best street food in Dotonbori. With your local guide, you’ll take an evening city safari, hopping from the street food stall to the izakaya pub’s snack bar. Dotonburi is famous throughout Japan for its wide variety of casual dining options and street food. Here, bars and restaurants line the neon-lit streets along with wall-mounted food stalls and ramen bars. And everywhere, people, young and old, enjoy the culinary delights of the nation’s most famous restaurant district. This is where the people of Kansai come to celebrate when their local baseball or soccer team wins the league, or just when they can think of an excuse!
Make sure to stop by the neon sign ‘Glico Running Man’ which along with the giant moving crab statue has become a symbol of the area.
You’ll also wander through Dotonbori, learning a little about the history (old and new) of the area. To ensure good luck for the rest of your trip, your guide will take you to Hozenji Yokocho to water the resident “Ofudosan”, a Buddhist god for love and business. As for food, you’ll keep yourself well full with a chance to sample kushikatsu beef kabobs and don’t miss out on the freshly soaked takoyaki octopus meatballs dripping in barbecue sauce.
