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

  • Bridge that connect Dotonbori to Shinsaibashi. One of the most popular place in Osaka. Really crowded, most people stop here to watch Glico sign.

  • It’s the most popular bridge in dotomburi shopping street area. Very crowded but it’s fun!

  • 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.

  • heavy human traffic bridge near Glico sign, see the place sparkle with neon advertising after sunset.

  • 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!
