We explore the back streets of Namba, going into local establishments of this area. We will sample quality sakes from the Kansai Region. 2 (maybe 3) stops, 3 sakes, 3 appetizers dishes. Hidden Namba. These spots are patronized by locals, this is why we go. To get the local feel of the area and drink with locals.
7:00pm I pick you up at the top of the stairs at Exit #14 Namba Station. When you reach the top of the stairs, stop and wait right there. Stay close to the top of the stairs. I will be the only non-Japanese person wearing Japanese clothes. There is also a Family Mart Convenience Store there, so if you want to go get a bottle of water, it is fine, but come right back if I am not there. We have to hit the local Shrine and pray that we make it out of Hidden Namba in ONE PIECE. LOL Take a few minutes and it is an important Shrine for that area, so, we need to be respectful. Depending on how many people in the group, I will choose three local spots to 'taste' our sakes at. I will also choose an appetizer at each spot that enhances the sake. There may be a little waiting time depending on the day of the week but everything is close and fun to get to. I can take you back to exit #14 or you can stay. Usually once the tour is over, I usually have a drink at one more spot with my clients because they want to see more. The tour covers everything until 10:00pm, then we are all on our own... LOL
