Get ready to get lost!Dotonbori could be a vacation in itself! This massively popular area is filled with three things: food, people, and lights! Dont expect to go here and be the only tourists around, oh no, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make new friends if you so choose. The lights brighten up the sky and you’ll lose track of time if you’re not careful! The lively atmosphere of Dotonbori could keep any old soul awake through the night. There’s no worry for a food shortage here. Restaurants line the alleys and the delicious aroma could pull you into restaurant after restaurant. Forget that you’re full! The food will smell too tempting to ignore!You haven’t been to Osaka if you havent been to Dotonbori!
This place is a food lovers paradise!! I tried Toroyaki which is balls with octopus inside them. Wow was it ever good! I also tried seafood noodles that were served to me on a hot griddle. If you like shopping then you will also love this place. All the big names are there. Go to this place you won’t regret it.
most famous tourist destination in Osaka .A bustling commercial street that is representing of the minami area of Osaka . how to get there via train . take the midosuji line to Namba station and walk north towards shinsaibashi about 5-10 min walk .lots of food ..
it was very good experience here in Osaka dotonburi is the area of night life and sight seeing at the same time you should come at least once ^^
Crowded place for shopping and dining. recommend to stay around this area
Super crowded in the evening, recommend to go during the day for some pictures and shopping! Everyone was taking pictures from the bridge, but actually from right across the Gilco sign is a pretty good place for pictures and not that crowded too.Just around the corner is a good quality/ service Japanese BBQ restaurent, be sure to make a reservation in advance or the waiting time would be around 1.5-2 hours.
Many great places around the area.So bring a lot of pocket money to taste it all. And shopping area almost tax free.
