This 3-hour night food tour will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the less frequented parts of South Osaka

This 3-hour Osaka Night Food Tour will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the less frequented parts of Minami (South) Osaka. Starting on the the heavily populated Doutonburi area on a bridge overlooking the inner canal we will quickly head into the fray past the Glico man, a Filipino sprinter named Fortunato Catalon who won a race at the 5th Far Eastern Sport Championship Games in 1921. When he crossed the finish line, his face was beaming with a big smile which gave favorable and healthy impressions. Having seen his smile, Glico, a large Japanese food conglomerate, decided to adopt it for their image. which inspired the Japan nation for years to come. Similar to Shibuya (its counterpart in Tokyo) the lights and sounds of Dotounburi often lead you astray to commercialized restaurants with queues of tourists outside while we want to take our guests to places they would certainly miss without a local’s guidance. Quickly darting from the crowd, we will take a secret alley not long after we begin the tour toward the shrines wedged out of sight from the average passerby.
