  • Well worth a walk around - good shops, excellent food, crazy arcades. Osaka is the place to go for Sushi, and Dotonbori doesn't dissapoint. Also, the Takoyaki street food is excellent.  more »
  • Osaka tourist attraction. Typical Osaka feeling full. Glico. Takoyaki. I do not know why squid grilled and spit of customer-friendly to foreigners. Which do you recommend eating standing out. Many people can have many foreign stations. But on the ground rises from the subway in mind, no so much elevator stair coverings
