Tonight there is a party called Monday Hearts at Pure. Generally a good hip hop party with very few foreigners. The party starts pretty late. Doesn't really fill in until 1:30 AM or so. I'm convinced that no one on the club scene in Osaka has a real job ;)

Not sure if I'm going but PM me and I can sort you out for guest list etc.

thanks for all the advice given already!

i'm going to osaka in 1/30-2/3 with my parents. i know japan is expensive all around, but they are low-spenders so i'm trying to find some more budget conscious eateries. anybody with a recommendation for minshuku would be appreciated as well.

thanks in advance.

It all depends on your definition of nice, and the location/area you want to stay.

What range is within your budget per meal? Also what area will you be staying at/traveling to? You want to eat near your hotel or in a specific area?

This might work, if you need a cheaper place gonna have to ask around. Otherwise i would recommend staying at a guest house.

Will be in Osaka for around 5 days in late june/early july

What are the "must eats" of Osaka? (I'll be backpacking around other parts of Japan so I'm looking for Osaka specialties)

Interesting clubs/bars with good experimental/indie music?

Art galleries/museums?

Shopping list?

Did you read the thread yet? Lots of good info already posted re: clubs/bars/food/shopping.

Can't help you with experimental indie music but I can make some inquiries for you.

Ok, here is the word from my homegirl who was the lord of the indie/experimental scene in Osaka

"Top ones are probably

Sunsui, Shinsaibashi - http://www.sunsui.net/ this is like a gallery
venue, hosting local artist installations.

Chika Ikkai (tiny venue but great with a hilarious bathroom) -
http://www.perversio...-ikkai/top.html cheap

Namba Rockets - http://www.namba-rockets.com/top.html cheap

Namba Bears - http://home.att.ne.jp/orange/bears/ cheap, and BYOB
from the combini

Shangri La, Umeda. - http://www.shan-gri-la.jp/ more standard live
house, slightly more expensive but high quality acts."

Rep me repeatedly ;)

My friend is coming in from out of town, what does the unrivaled night-scene master of Osaka Mr. Bento have for us this weekend?

I need to show him a good time it's his first time in Japan, *wink wink*

Believe it or not, it's actually my first weekend off in ten weeks. That being said, I told some of my friends that I would drop an afterhours set on Saturday night. This is like DEEP afterhours (6/7AM start time). PM me and I:ll tell you where.

Let me know what you want to check out and I can try to slide you into some spots. I think on Friday we are hitting some bikini jam at Giraffe with all of the 外人モデル。 Saturday might bump some electro at Onzieme before heading to aforementioned afterhours of death :)

Were you at the last Hollywood?
