What we provide
We provide Izakaya Tour in Osaka
Izakaya: Japanese bistro / Tachinomiya: Japanese standing bar
We are two Japanese men from Osaka, the capital of Kansai, located in western Japan. Osaka is a vibrant city packed with wonderful, interesting, and very open-minded people.
When you come to Osaka with your friends, trying local bars and starting a conversation with Japanese people is not always that simple. We can definitely help you with that.
One of the main issue you will probably encounter here is the language barrier, and if you are not really familiar with the language of Miyamoto, it might be difficult to fully enjoy Japan.
We would like to give our service to foreign tourists, ideally 4 or 5 people per tour, who like to drink, and let you experiencing and having good fun in authentic local bars in Osaka with us.
Our service includes Izakaya and Tachinomiya hopping. A Japanese style bistro and a Japanese standing bar respectively. If you really like to drink, you are at the right place!
We will be your private guides and will tell everything you want to know about Japanese cuisine and alcohol beverage. We can also teach you useful Japanese language and local dialect.
In short, Kentaro is a Japanese teacher who can speak English and Mitsuru is a standing bar owner with lots of jokes.
If you want to learn deeper about Japanese culture, if you want to know what great Izakaya is and if you don’t believe in guidebooks, Kacho Fugetsu is made for you!
