Arrival in Osaka and Gourmet Street Food Tour

Today you’ll arrive in Osaka, and check into your centrally located hotel. In the evening your local guide will take you to the heart of Osaka’s mesmerising food scene – Dotonburi. Located in the lively Namba district, this neon-lit street has pretty much every known type of Japanese street food. Your guide will tell you all about the endless options there are, and you’ll sample a few snacks and a drink under their watch before you’re left to eat your way through Osaka independently. The rest of the evening is free and you can make your way to the hotel whenever you wish.

Free Time & Departure

Today you’ll have plenty of time to see most of the city’s impressive sites. Head to the ancient Shitennouji Temple, spend some time in the Garden of Paradise, and visit the giant Abeno Harukas skyscraper. There is an excellent subway system here, making it easy to navigate your way around. You can then take it easy and find somewhere to enjoy a green tea.

A beautiful and traditional Japanese garden

In the evening you’ll have some more free time to take in Osaka’s fast-paced nightlife, eat some more of the weird and wonderful food on offer, or even pitch up at a local karaoke bar – if you’ve had enough sake. After a good night’s sleep, you’ll check out of your hotel, ready to continue your Japanese journey.

"I love the retro-futuristic vibes of Tokyo, not to mention the tasty donburi! Staying in a traditional ryokan and bathing in the natural hot springs (onsen) are particular highlights for me."
