  • This is a great place to shop and stroll. The-Osaka feels packed. Spoilt dining options abound, because even though you don't want. It is also jostling.

  • The area south of Osaka is to see especially for the Dotonbori (of Night preferably) residents of Osaka outgoing a lot at night to go to the restaurants or to meet friends. The atmosphere is very different from what we see elsewhere in Japan.

  • This is one place full of shops and eateries full of tourist and locals. A great place to stroll in the evening so many choices of Japanese food and in the end it's still hard to decide.  more »
