What to Expect
Itinerary

You'll connect with locals in Osaka using a language we all know and love - good food. We don't run tours or provide you with a 'guide' - we connect you to regular, personable locals to enjoy socializing with them at the food spots they love in their city.

You'll be matched up with a local and accompany him/her to their favorite food spots. All experiences are private, allowing you to get to know the locals and create genuine human connections on your trip in Japan. It'll open the window to local cuisine and social life.

Choose from five restaurant atmospheres to visit with your local match. Each atmosphere has its own type of foods and drinks. These are:

Traditional Japanese Restaurants

Sushi Bars

Izakaya

Sake Bars

Regional Cuisines

Choose the experience with the atmosphere and characteristics that sound best for you.

Each experience includes a local at the dinner, meal costs, a complimentary drink, and a good story or two about Japan.

Stop At:

• Dotombori Glico Sign, 1-10-2 Dotombori, Chuo-ku, Osaka 542-0071 Osaka Prefecture
