I manage the Kansai area-based tours for Experience+, especially those in Osaka and Kyoto. I'm originally born and raised in Osaka, but recently I have lived in Kyoto for almost 4 years. During my high school years, I lived in Canada, and have traveled to many destinations throughout Asia. These experiences gave me a love for travel, and a deep curiosity for finding local places and hidden gems that I can visit with local people along the way. Now, back in Japan, I feel that it's my turn to start showing travelers around my favorite spots, including some of the coolest, lesser-known locations around Kyoto and Osaka where I grew up! Come and join my experience as we make new, unforgettable memories from the best corners of Japan!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Get ready to enjoy Osaka’s nightlife scene on this tour, just like a local! People around the world love Osaka’s city districts because it’s thriving with food and culture. Throughout the year many people crowd its streets but still don’t know which spots are the best for good food and even better atmosphere. Your host, Tamaki, however is a born and raised Osaka-native, who can show you the ins and outs of a hidden secret known as “Ura Namba”. Literally meaning, “Back” or “secret”, this area of Ura Namba will include all the best places to eat and drink, as a full-on local experience. We'll hit 3 restaurants during the tour; 2 Izakaya bars and sake. Recharge from your travels with a chance to kick back and soak in Osaka’s good vibes. *About food restrictions* - We can accommodate those who cannot eat whole pieces of meat or fish, but some dishes are based on fish broth and we cannot avoid this. - Alcohol or pork may be included in the ingredients. - Therefore, we cannot accommodate strict vegetarian/non alcoholic diets.

One of the authentic tour I’ve ever been to
There was no English menu at the tour, which is actually great! You know that the best local restaurants or bars are most likely will not have any English translation in their menu. The best thing is that we were explained by the lovely tour guide about all the information that we need and want to know! Our tour guide treats us very friendly and perfect. She is organized, and very punctual. The tour program was scheduled well, was on time. We didn't miss anything during the tour program. We felt we knew her for a long time hahaha. I would love to have more of the similar type of tour experience if I were to travel somewhere else (non-English speaking countries)!See moreSee less
The best Japanese local restaurants and that was amazing with strong Japanese traditional style.
Thanks for our host who took me to the best sushi that I had in my life! We got in a narrow lane where hides the best Japanese local restaurants and that was amazing with strong Japanese traditional style. It is hard for us who don’t speak Japanese traveling in Japan so I highly recommend to have the host especially a good English speaker like ours :) and u would never be awkward with her cuz shes really nice and friendly! Another important thing is that shes the professional! I wish I could travel more Japanese cities if have chances and I would like to use WOW!JAPAN again!See moreSee less
