Overview
If you want to party like they do in Osaka, this bar-hopping tour is perfect for you. Your local guide will take you to hidden bars that tourists often miss. If you don’t speak Japanese, don’t let language barriers get in your way. Your guide will help explain the menus, and order for you. This is a fun tour for friends or couples, and makes a great start to a night out in Osaka.
What to Expect
Visit: Magical Trip, Namba Station Exit 15-B, Namba, Chuo, Osaka 542-0076 Osaka Prefecture

Start the Osaka Nightlife by Hopping Hidden Local Bars & Taste Local Food at Namba Area
After meeting our local tour guide at exit 15B of Namba station, the guide will take you around a food alley, located near Dotonbori. This narrow alley reminds people of the historic old days of Osaka with Japanese style Izakaya bars lined up in the alley and including a small temple called Hozenji temple. Many locals come relax and enjoy local food there at night. After walking around the alley, we'll visit the first Izakaya bar that serves various types of Osaka's traditional food such as Kushikatsu (fried skewers). The combination of this local food and drinking local Beer, Sake, and Shochu will definitely pump up your night!
Get a Taste of Japanese Drinking Culture & Get to Know Osaka People - Enjoy the Night in Style like the Locals Do!
After enjoying delicious fried skewers, you and our local guide will go to the next izakaya bar of the bar hopping tour. At this place you can eat a traditional Japanese food which most tourists don't really know. Osaka is known for their variety of foods because they import from all over the world.  Of course let's grab many more drinks at this nightlife bar tour! The night tour is not over yet! Afterwards let's continue the bar hopping night tour by pub crawling through more bars!
Pub Crawl through the Indoor Food Alley featuring Osaka's Delicious Food - Takoyaki, Sushi, Yakitori Etc
Lastly, we'll hop on to other bars in an area called Ura-Namba, where hidden traditional and delicious restaurants are located. We are going to one of the most unique nightlife food alleys around there. A collection of 20 kinds of Izakaya bars and eateries filled daily full of locals grabbing a bite to eat at night. Have a seat and enjoy your meals and drinks in front of a bar serving small Japanese plates such as Yakitori (chicken skewers) and grilled vegetables. You can also try sushi, takoyaki, Okonomiyaki ( Japanese savory pancake origins from Osaka) or many other kinds of delicious local food from many bars in this food alley. They will deliver the meal right to you!
Snap Photos at One of the Most Famous Spots in Osaka - Capture the Dotonbori Nightlife
Before going back to Namba station, we'll drop by Dotonbori and take memorable photos with friends and the guide you met on this night tour! The atmosphere of Dotonbori is totally different at night compared to the day. At night it is very vivid and unique like the local people who live in Osaka. By the end of this tour, you'll surely get to know how distinctive and special this city really is. After all this city is known amongst travelers as being the nightlife "Party City" of Japan!
