Experience how Osaka comes alive at night on this customised experience. With your Host, hand-picked to match you, discover how the locals here really party any night of the week, as the city is alive and kicking 24 hours a day! Spend the evening like a true local and bar hop your way around the city in style, stopping by izakaya (Japanese pubs), tachinomiya (unique standing bars) and even enjoying a beer from a konbini (quirky convenience stores) like the locals do! At izakaya you’ll share delicious small plates of yakitori, gyoza and other classic pub snacks. Then join the local office workers as they sip sake or beer at a tachinomiya before it’s time for karaoke! Sing your heart out in a karaoke bar or box where you hire your own room until the sun comes up. Finally, with your Host, join the other locals queuing for a 5am bowl of ramen before the public transport starts again.
