Yuki Fujisawa

Meet your Host

Born and raised in Osaka, Yuki has visited over 75 countries and speaks 4 languages – Japanese, English, French and Italian – and also has the title of sommelier and International Kikisake-shi (sommelier for Japanese sake).

Dietary Requirements

Osaka is a little behind the curve on plant based cuisine but there are a few options, the best thing to do in this situation is get in touch in advance to talk about specifics!

Meeting Point

The meeting point for the tour is JR Tenma station. The easiest way to get here is to first take a train or subway to JR Osaka station and then transfer to the Osaka loop line. Tenma is one stop from Osaka in a clockwise direction.

  • Highly recommend


    Yuki’s tour is hands down fantastic. He takes you off the beaten track, we strolled through some alleys, went to the most charming Izakaya, had the best food & drink, and learned so much about Japan. Do yourself a favour and book this tour!

  • Fabulous evening


    What a fabulous evening with Yuki (and one other couple) on a very interesting evening walk getting a feel for the unseen Osaka and learning much more. If you are happy to try things, go ahead and book this tour, you won’t regret it. An excellent guide!

  • Amazing experience


    We had already spent 10 days in Japan but through Yuki, we learned more about Japan than in those previous 10 days. This was about more than eating & drinking (which was amazing!), it was really learning about Osaka & Japanese culture. Highly recommend! Thank you Yuki!

  • Perfect local experience


    We had a blast checking out the local spots in Osaka and trying delicious street food and drinks with Yuki. The highlight is the true local izakaya experience where we had multiple yummy dishes and the best sake we've ever tried in a lively room full of locals. Would definitely recommend this tour!
