Day 2

Private Half Day Osaka Comfort Food Tour

Osaka is one of Japan's most vibrant cities, especially known for its lively people and its food. Today you will be introduced to the splendors of Osaka's casual cuisine and the culture of 'kuiadore' (literally translated as eating oneself to bankruptcy)! Either you will start your food journey at Shinsekai or Dotonbori, depending on which is closer to your hotel. Both are famous for their pedestrian-only restaurant streets and are known as food paradises throughout Japan. At either, one you will find colorful eateries and bars lining the streets. In Osaka, the soul food kitchen of Japan, hole in the wall takoyaki stands and ramen bars rub shoulders with upscale eateries serving the finest wagyu beef. You will have the chance to sample a variety of local foods, including the famous and ubiquitous 'takoyaki' (commonly known as 'octopus balls'), 'okonomiyaki' (a kind of savoury pancake), and 'kushikatsu' (skewered meats and vegetables). If you prefer, your guide can also take you to a huge variety of other establishments, from ramen noodles to izakaya bars.

Day 3

Private Morning Osaka Kuromon Market Breakfast & Make-Your-Own Takoyaki Tour

Move away from the basic idea of Japanese cuisine on this food adventure! Osaka is known as the soul kitchen of Japan, and Kuromon Market is renowned as the kitchen of Osaka. This morning you will seek out traditional family businesses and sample local favourites such as fresh seafood, okonomiyaki, homemade oden stew, and juicy grilled wagyu beef skewers, and a historical or modern Japanese sweet. Then explore 'Doguyasuji' (Osaka's kitchenware street), home to everything and anything you need to open a restaurant. Strolling through this shopping arcade, you will come across family-run kitchen knife makers, and artificial food display makers. Finish the tour by grilling your own Takoyaki! Upon request, your guide can also show you a secret takoyaki flavour called "ponzu", a citrus vinaigrette sauce. Your guide will leave you in Osaka to continue enjoying the city at your leisure.
