  • Popular place everyone who visit Osaka must come and spend many hours here. You can find many restaurants, shopping places, snacks, street food and even high brand shops be around this area. Kobe beef also one of the best choice to have here. Japanese as you know are service mind people, so you can get smile and welcome every shops you pass by. At night it's more cheerful and crowded with travellers, anyway shops will continue be closed from 20.00.

  • This is a very lively and sensory place which might well be regarded as the heart of Osaka. I like to have crab meals inside the crab specialist restaurant and watching the pubic performance there. The alternative is simply to buy the grilled crab meat sold outside the restaurant, as they are just as fresh and delicious but a lot cheaper!

  • One of the HIGH LIGHTS of Osaka a MUST SEE for all who travel or even live there... Full of great places to eat such as the delicious street food and the huge shopping areas. An enjoyment for older kids and above I would think

  • We went to Osaka for our honeymoon. The decisions was made because we wanted to go to USJ but Dotonburi was second reason. It had everything you could hope to see in Osaka: Street Food of every food of Japan, Shopping centers for souvenirs, great photo location, awesome river tour, great bars and etc. This place is perfect at night. Enjoyed most of my evening here after a long day of sightseeing. Definitely recommend this place if you're in Osaka, especially at night.
