Description
This 3-hour Osaka Night Food Tour will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the busy streets and the hidden, less frequented parts of Minami (South) Osaka. 

Starting on the the bright and busy Dotonburi area, we will learn about Glico man, a Filipino sprinter named Fortunato Catalon, who inspired a nation and a company! We will take secret alleys not long after we begin the tour toward the shrine wedged out of sight from the average passerby.

We will sample, Kushikatsu, (deep fried meat and veggie skewers) a local take on Yakitori and we will surprise you with a Michelin rated street food stop for Osaka’s favorite snack– Takoyaki! (a kind of grilled octopus fritter). Try a draft beer or Nihonshu (rice wine) with your tasty meal.

From there, we will show you a famous building full of hidden unorthodox bars, one after another. Finally finish off with a tasty local street food dessert!
