DESTINATIONS japan osaka Dining Fukutaro


Fukutaro is claimed to be a must-try in Osaka. This is a good place to try okonomiyaki, a pancake-like dish. There are numerous variations to choose from and if you can't decide there is still the grill-it-yourself option.


Due to its fertile land and close proximity to the sea, Osaka has always produced a copious amount of delicious ingredients. A particularly popular dish in Osaka is "Okonomi-yaki", a Japanese style pancake that contains a combination of meat, seafood, and vegetables, all covered in a tasty sauce. Take a seat in an Izakaya, the Japanese version of a pub, and try "Takoyaki" – balls of wheat batter containing octopus.
