Osaka Pub Crawl and Nightlife Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    The Osaka Pub Crawl is basically a "bar hopping" tour. As a group of about 30 - 50 people, you will visit various bars or clubs over the course of an evening in Osaka. All the bars are in walking distance, so its a great way to experience some fun venues that the city's nightlife has to offer, and meet people along the way.

    Visit at least 3 bars or clubs, and the last stop will always be a nightclub. On most nights, you will also be offered an after party included in admission to all pub crawlers. This usually takes place at another club. So in one night you might actually visit anywhere from 3 - 6 venues.

    Osaka is the seconds largest metropolitan city in Japan. There is so much to do here, but in comparison to other major cities, it is surprisingly difficult to experience a random, crazy night on the town, especially if you don't know when or where to go.

    If you are considering coming alone, don't be shy! Many people come alone, and every attempt is made to mix the group and introduce everyone to each other.

    About the Attendees
    • About 30- 50 people
    • A mix of Japanese and non-Japanese
    • Most participants are between 21 - 38 years old
    • Everyone is welcome regardless of age, race, disability, or gender
    • Many people come alone and quickly make friends along the way

    Sample Itinerary
    • Bar 1  (7:00pm to 8:30pm)

    Usually a relaxed cafe or bar restaurant with some space to sit down. A good environment for talking and getting to know each other. You will participate in a mixer/icebreaker here. 
    • Bar 2  (8:30pm to 9:30pm)

    The second bar will have a little more music. You'll have plenty of chances to get to know your fellow pub crawlers even more, as there will be more games and activities. 
    • Bar 3  (9:30pm to 10:30pm)

    The third bar will be more energetic. You should be very comfortable with you fellow pub crawlers at this point.
    • Bar 4 - The Club  (10:30pm to closing)

    If you haven't found yourself on the dance floor by now, you'll be hard-pressed not to do so at the last stop, a club. The club will be open until 5am and locals usually start arriving around 1am or so. The Osaka pub crawl officially ends at 11:30pm, providing you plenty of time to catch your last train.

    Please Note: You must be at least 20 years old to participate in this tour. Photo ID will be required.

    You go to 3 pubs then you can ask where to go for the rest of the night (like a night club). Open bar for 1000yen is a good deal.
