Ura-Namba, back streets in Namba, has lots of great little shops, restaurants and bars but are still hidden from tourists. I will take you to those little streets and ask you choose 2-3 spots/restaurants to visit. You can also choose to start from Nipponbashi area (Osaka's sub-cultural mecca) or Doguyasuji (kitchen equipment street including potteries and knives) for shopping.

What to Expect

You can enjoy your own preferred way of digging into Namba by visiting places such as:
-Small local diners/bars that you can go hopping;
-Local sushi bar that serves sushi from the chef, on a belt;
-Doguyasuji street, a shopping arcade dedicated to providing cooking tools and equipment both for homes and professional chefs including Japanese knives, plastic foods, tacoyaki grills and more;
-Nipponbashi sub-culture area for gadget shopping at DenDen town, visiting a cat-cafe, maid-cafe, game and anime shops, etc.; and/or Karaoke bar/restaurant that you can enjoy food and singing in a private space.
I will make sure to maximize your precious and limited time in Namba without having communication and/or wandering problems, and even more, you will enjoy interacting with Osaka locals who are known as so much fun to chat/drink with!
