Osaka is much more than the capital of the Kansai region—it's a lively, colorful and nocturnal haven filled with some of the best cuisines in the whole of the country.
Serving as an economic hub since its days as a 4th-century port, Osaka is steeped in tradition and history. The city's intriguing past is best explored through its temples, shrines, and the famous Osaka Castle. More recently, Osaka has emerged as a lively cultural metropolis, known for its bright lights, bustling markets, and perhaps the most famous gastronomy in all of Japan. This is where you will find some of the best street food in Japan, from takoyaki (balls of battered octopus) and okonomiyaki (savory pancakes) being local specialties. Explore Osaka yourself with Context's private guided tours.

We enjoyed this food tour with Marcin! We had walked thru one of the shopping areas beforehand, but with Marcin, he opened our eyes to interesting aspects of the different vendors that we had not noticed when we were by ourselves. The Kobe Beef that we sampled was scrumptious as was the takoyaki. Thanks Marcin for a fun day!
