Our food tour of Osaka’s Kuromon Market was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. The marketplace and the food were wonderful, of course, but there was so much more to it. We learned about local Osaka idiom, how to select good sake, what are the best snack foods, and much more. Our host Tatsuya was superb. This tour gets my very highest recommendation.

Kaori was our guide, she was king, friendly, professional and informative. She explained everything about the food and its history of the places we went to. Wonderful experience with Japan Wonder Travel.

Our guide Yoshika (Abi) took us around for an unforgettable food tour where we got to experience truly authentic local food.
Yoshika's knowledge of the area and history of Osaka meant we not only got to sample great food, but were given that extra bit of context which brought it all together.
I highly recommend this trip if you're staying in Osaka!

The Kuromon Market tour was fantastic. Our guide, Yoshika, was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging! We tasted food that we would never of tried on our own. She allowed us extra time at a 600 year old knife shop where we purchased a beautiful chefs knife.
We definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning about Osaka and tasting the local cuisine.
Tip: start the tour hungry- the tour offers generous samples of different dishes.

Our tour guide, Tatsuya, made this a great food tour. We've done food tours in several cities around the world, but this was the most fun. The food samplings were excellent. Tatsuya customized the tour to suit our desires, and helped us with shopping for specialty products after the tour.

Outstanding food tour with Tatsuya, who was very knowledgeable and fun. We tasted many delicious foods - sushi, yakitori, dried ginger, and Osaka’s own takoyaki. Our favorite was okinomiyashi, a savory pancake with veggies, meat & seafood. We even helped make it! I highly recommend #japanwondertravel
