Sing until you lose your voice…or get kicked out

Karaoke is a staple of Japanese culture – there are few better ways to let off steam or get to know a group of people. As a city that values drunken revelry above most else, Osaka has a wealth of karaoke joints to choose from.

There’s box karaoke, where guests rent a room to enjoy a private singing experience. At shops Jankara or Maneki Neko, guests can reserve a room for a hour at a time or book “free time,” which usually lasts until the sun comes up. Rates are usually fairly cheap, and you can order food and drink to be delivered to your room by touch screen or phone.

Then there’s the karaoke bar, which usually has no cover charge and lets guests sing publicly in front of strangers, a great way to make friends while traveling! Some of the best of these in Osaka are Kama Sutra, Moonshine, and Domus.
