Ebisubashi - Review

This tiny bridge is the source of an amusing but legendary anecdote. When the Kansai-based Hanshin Tigers baseball team tossed a statue of KFC mascot Colonel Harland Sanders into the river from this bridge in 1985, it was followed by an 18 year long losing streak for the team. This was called the 'Curse of the Colonel'. Other than this, it's just a pretty structure that serves a gathering point for locals. That also makes it a nice place to people watch. Check the Glico “Running Man” neon signboard overhead. The first bridge on this location was built in the Edo period.

Ebisubashi, Osaka Reviews

  • This is a must visit bridge to be seen at night when in Osaka. It's quite crowded but it provides a nice view of the river and the lights. Great for people watching.

  • Such a beautiful experience!! Pretty lights and we also were lucky enough too see a perform and chant on a small rowing boat. Many places to eat around here, but it does get really busy in the evening!

  • 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.

  • 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~

  • Bridge crossing in Dotonbori area. Under this bridge there is a river, and this location is where Tombori River Cruise for tourists who visit Japan.
