About
Experience the real Osaka with a local guide, who will take you to some of the city's most intriguing neighborhoods. Most tourists stick to the same places and rarely dig beneath the surface to discover the more gritty neighborhoods, where some shady dealings occur. Tour these places safely, and learn about the culture and history of Osaka, with your half-Japanese, half-Australian guide.

I had a great time exploring the areas of Osaka tourists don't know about. Luca was an amazing tour guide who gave us a lot of interesting information and even stayed out drinking with us after the tour finished.

I would highly recommend this tour.

My adventurous group of three were led on a wonderful evening of Osaka secrets and delicious food by Andy. We were guided to hidden secrets and in such a comfortable way that we were able to explore and interact with locals in a way that felt natural. Andy was knowledgeable, candid, and shared a lot of great facts and details about the area that truly displayed his food and area expertise. The food was incredible, varied and delicious!

Two of our group were Japanese and I have been here teaching at University for two years yet Andy showed us things and experiences we would never have had on our own.

I would highly recommend this tour and Andy for anybody who wants a great experience, tourist or even Japanese.

You will not be sorry! Go and explore!!!

Andy was knowledgeable and so fun! We had a great time seeing the parts of Osaka people often overlook. He had so much local knowledge about everywhere we went. It was wonderful to explore Osaka with someone who clearly knew where he was going and could confidently show us around. Plus there was great food along the way. Thank you again, Andy!

I went on this tour last month and I got to say that it was the highlight of my Kansai trip. Well planned and the guide, Andy, was forthcoming with all the answers to my questions throughout. It wasn't just any tour, it was a real hit to my all my senses and my preconcieved notions of osaka and Japan. It more than helped that Andy was Japanese Australia....he filled in all the gaps for me.
Kindest regards,
