Tour description provided by Viator

Visit one of Osaka's central food markets, select decadent Japanese beef and other provisions, then later head to a "standing bar" style restaurant for an afternoon or early evening session on the teppan (Japanese grill), where you'll get to eat the spoils of your whirlwind education (and have an included drink while you're at it). There are two ways to enjoy this experience; simply choose the option that appeals most to you at time of purchase. One way starts mid-afternoon and includes a cooking class. The other is a bit later, but there is no hands-on cooking.This is your chance to visit a bustling local market, get a cooking class, and then compare three different types of fine Japanese beef, learn about sake, and make (cooking class only part of earlier session) other Japanese favorites -- all under the tutelage of a Japanese chef, and in a centrally located part of the city free from the tourist scene. Let us teach you why Osaka is such a renown food town.
