- Product code: osakawild
Osaka is the second largest city in Japan with deep and eclectic, electric culture that delivers for visitors, big time. Locals say “you go bankrupt in Osaka from eating and drinking all the good stuff,” and the city is the cradle of who Japanese consider to be the friendliest and funniest people in Japan. Overlaid on this the quirkiest urban architecture in Japan, and Blade Runner-esque futuristic landscape of the 30th century. Osaka is a missed mega-city with untold and unmatched depth, the largest home by far of the intriguing minorities and subcultures of Japan, and plenty of weird character - and characters.
This is the tour for discovering the weird character...
Osaka JTT Guides are locals who love the food and fun of their home city, and spend most of their free time and social life eating and drinking at spots along Namba and Shinsaibashi, and urban exploring by foot. Osaka served as the “nation’s kitchen” tenkano daidokoro, and these are the best chefs and bartenders of the scene. Osaka finally still remains Japan’s premiere place to party, really, way over Tokyo, and these guys get the party started for our guests and urban adventurers up to 11.
Highlights: Most Wild and Weird Town in Japan, The kitchen of the nation, the perfect place to party, and the cradle of the funniest characters in Japan. 30th Century Architecture.
Route: Nihonbashi Den Den Electric Town > Live Music Venues > Anime Restaurant and Bar > Misono Building
We kick off the trip in the Nihonbashi anime and manga magnet, just about ground zero of everything comic and crazy in the graphic novel and cosplay world of Japan. Electronics and anime abounds here and it is the single most lit-up place in Japan you may see on your entire trip, with and electric bill and neon to match! Peruse some of the more bizarre and bright of these with your guide, and then set off for some live bars for some music around Osaka. Break for a late dinner at an anime and comic-themed bar and restaurant. As the evening goes on, we'll head into the Misono building for some choice venues to enjoy more music and nightlife and denizens of Osaka, Misono being the multistory hive of sound and good times.
