What we're about

Deep Backstreet Osaka (https://www.google.co.jp/maps/place/%E5%8B%95%E7%89%A9%E5%9C%92%E5%89%8D%E9%A7%85/@34.6454769,135.5023789,16.5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x2cef12ed79886744!8m2!3d34.648666!4d135.504755)

These are the incredible Backstreet Osaka Tours of the ghetto, homeless, yakuza, redlight district and gambling dens. Also you’ll be treated to an amazing traditional meal & desserts at a spectacular restaurant.

We strive to show you the authentic Osaka, where you get a real and deep understanding of the inner workings of this amazing city visiting some astonishing architecture which is steeped in history and some run down, derelict areas too
..not what Osaka Tourism wants you to see!

We have 2 professional guides (Andy is half Japanese & half Australian, Tony is half Japanese & half American). Both have an extensive knowledge of the Osaka region and can answer all your queries.

We hope it’s going to be an eye opener and a real shock to the senses

What We’ll Explore! (http://backstreetosakatours.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/bsot_1.jpg)

We will show you the hidden gems that you would never find without us.
