  • You have to visit the landmark Dotonbori, once you arrive Osaka, though it's hard find the best thing here, you can feel and enjoy the local atmosphere here, nice food and shopping are everywhere. Or if you could speak japanese, you may visit the local bar and club nearby, even onesan bar serves here. Finally if you are leaving early in the next day, you can find 24 hours bookstore Tsutaya and many drugstores as you need. Enjoy the trip~
  • Pretty cool area. Takes a while to get your head around how crowded and busy the whole thing is. Plenty of food options. Most places have seating upstairs with a bar. Lots of street food options and plenty going on well into the night.
  • To be seen to see the young trendy crowd ... and the crowd of tourists coming to see... the giant advertising . No great.place.to eat though.
  • Lovely bridge. Super crowded. I didn’t notice too much vehicle traffic. Great phot opportunity but the best time to go is probably early morning if you don’t like crowds in your pictures like me.
  • I went to here in Dec.2017. When it comes to Osaka, this palace look like essential especially at night. Many many people, whose majority seems to be Chinese not Japanese, were crowded here. It seems to be no doubt that the place is some of the most biggest midtown all over the world.
