Insider Experience: Osaka street food

Take a street food tour of Osaka's exciting Nanba district with one of "Insider" experts

Experience down-to-earth Osaka's motto: kuidaore - "eat drink and enjoy life" - on an evening tour of Dotonbori's best street food. With your local guide, you'll take a night time safari through the city, hopping from street food stall to snack bar to izakaya pub.

Dotonburi is famous throughout Japan for its vast array of casual dining options and street food. Here bars and eateries line the neon illuminated streets along with hole-in-the-wall food stands and ramen bars. And everywhere people, young and old, are out to enjoy the culinary pleasures of the nation's most famous restaurant district. This is where Kansai people come to celebrate when their local baseball or football team win the league - or just whenever they can think of an excuse!

You'll be sure to stop off at the 'Glico running man' neon ad which along with the giant moving crab statue has become a symbol of the area. You will also stroll through Dotonbori, learning a little of the history (old and new) of the area. To ensure good luck for the rest of your trip, the guide will take you to Hozenji Yokocho to splash water on to the resident "Ofudosan", a Buddhist God for love and business. Food wise you will keep well filled up with the chance to try kushikatsu meat skewers and don't miss freshly battered takoyaki octopus dumplings dripping in barbecue sauce.
