japan :: osaka :: general

Recommended Posts

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.

Can anybody recommend a nice hotel in Osaka?

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?

well I'm not made of yens, but I have some cash to spare. I'm only there for a couple of days, and I'm looking to eat some good food and maybe see a sight or two. Any suggestions?

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

i'd definitely stay at a guesthouse type thing. every time i visit kyoto i stay there in my own apartment type place for roughly 40.00 USD a day.

funny signature 藍染Jon, some old man say that to you?

You'll hear everything from hip hop to house to electro to rock and bak again. Party rock with hip hop sensibilities.

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.perversion-web.com/chika-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?
