  • Good location, very interesting. Appropriate for all ages. There are many restaurants selling lots of terrorists in many different desserts. That everything

  • Popular tourist location, but seems a place where people can relax chill out. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Brightest spark in Osaka 
  •  Way pleasures of love of finery of Kyoto, Osaka and Osaka so food is cheap and no wealth. I raise the level of entire Osaka food and traditional food from the era of Hideyoshi's people. This dotonbori in Osaka is a melting pot of food.  Let's experience the various foods in Japan one after another!
