Testimonials from Participants

This well-organized tour is thoroughly researched and offered an enjoyable balance of local culture and information about “deep” Osu along with a fun variety of tasty food and drink. Highly recommended!

Stephen A. Carter

I really enjoyed my time on the food tour! 

Excellent choices on the traditional stuff. I would never have thought to seek out those traditional Japanese snacks, they were super yum! Maybe it could do with another savory bite to the list but otherwise all excellent choices.

The stops at the shrines and temples were cool. It gives you some insight into how Nagoya City was established and the values of the ancient day Japanese. 

The guide Lena was nice and super chilled.  It was an all-round great afternoon at Osu with delicious bites and a short history lesson.

I’d definitely recommend it!

Loma Mataika

The tour was great fun, Lena was very knowledgable about the food we were enjoying and the area of Osu-Kannon.

It was good to try new things and meet lovely people in the process.

I really enjoyed all the dishes but my favorite food on the tour has got to be the Mochi sticks. I’ll be back for more!

Charl Redmond

Lena’s food tour is a great walk through Nagoya’s cool Osu neighbourhood. 

I’ve been living here for a few months and visited this neighbourhood often, but Lena showed us hidden places with both sweet and salty foods, all with local charm. 

You’ll also learn cultural aspects and see some neighbourhood temples and shrines. 

It’s a great tour as an introduction to the area or to find new things in familiar places.

Is this tour a good fit for families?

An Osu Street Food Walking Tour is an amazing activity for the whole family.

The food is delicious and easy to eat, Osu is super interesting and there is not too much walking involved.

Your kids will learn a lot, but they will enjoy themselves doing it!

What is not included in the tour?

The transportation to the meeting place and from the endpoint is not included in the tour fee. Your knowledgeable guide will be happy to help you find transport back to your hotel or to the next activity of the day.

While tipping is not a common practice in Japan, feel free to tip our guides if they did a great job.

What should I bring?

Since there is bit of walking involved we recommend comfortable shoes.

Bring a bottle of water or something else to stay hydrated especially in summer.

Can I book a private tour?

This tour is a group tour, which means other people might join your tour. We do offer private tours as well. No matter if you are alone or a big group of friends, we can accommodate you on a private tour. Check out the Private Food Tour page for more information.

What happens when it rains? Will the tour be canceled?

In general, tours take place rain or shine. This is absolutely no problem because the Osu Shopping Streets are all roofed over and so we will be protected from the elements during most of the tour.

There are however some short parts of the tour away from the roofed-over areas so just in case I recommend an umbrella or a rain jacket.

We might cancel in case of extraordinary weather conditions like a typhoon or after natural catastrophes. You will get an email at least 2 hours before the tour in case it is canceled.

Can I cancel or reschedule the tour?

If you cancel more than one week in advance a cancelation fee of 10% will be charged. Within one week the cancelation fee will be 20% and cancelation within 24 hours of the tour will have a cancellation fee of 50% of the tour price.

It might, however, be possible to change the date of your tour at no extra charge. Make sure to send us an email early enough to inquire about changes.

Sharing is caring!
