    Osakaya Umeda Station

    If you’re in the mood for something more local, you can check out Osakaya. It’s a lively place located between Osaka and Umeda station and is almost always crowded, with partiers winding up a night’s carousing next to salarymen having breakfast. They serve fish, beef, tofu, and udon all day and start serving alcohol around noon. You’ll be expected to eat quickly and move on, but the set meals, called teshoku, which have a main as well as a side dish and include rice and miso soup, are extremely reasonably priced.
