Explore Japan's foodie capital

The culinary capital of Japan, Osaka majors in the art of gastronomy. Spend two nights exploring the essence of its foodie culture, from specialist restaurants to street food stalls. In Osaka, this is called kuidaore, which roughly translates as ‘to eat until you’re ruined’. And it’s all in the best possible way. Unleash your appetite on street stalls and night markets that fire up delicious bites at every turn. 

Feast on street food

Transfer from Shin Osaka station to your hotel, where you will meet your guide. This trip starts in Dotonbori, where Japanese gastronomy reigns supreme. Discover local cuisine and night life: take your pick from street food side stalls and sample the best of Osaka delicacies. Unmissable specialities include tasty takoyaki (fried octopus balls) and okonomiyaki, a savoury pancake mixed with cabbage, pork, ginger and nori. Make sure you try kushikatsu – a local delicacy of deep-fried skewers of meat.

Food, glorious food

Today explore the roots of Osaka’s culinary culture, which is the heart and soul of the city. Taste sake and Japanese wine in a standing bar, then enjoy a gourmand feast of wagyu beef in a specialist restaurant. Some believe this expensive dish tastes even better with a cocktail in your hand. Next, it’s time to discover tempura before the end of your food tour. Tonight, learn all about Osaka’s unique food and heritage, before heading to the retro-cool, nostalgia-inducing district of Shinsekai (‘new world’).

A full stomach

Having sampled all of Osaka’s culinary delights and treated yourself to local delicacies, transfer to Shin Osaka station for your onward journey.
