This little neighborhood running alongside Dotonbori Canal has been a lively spot ever since the Edo period. In those days it used to be thick with restaurants, bathhouses and inns. Today it is one of Osaka's most fun nightspots. In fact, during the daytime it is pretty quiet. The fun starts when the galaxy of neon lights and signs start flickering on in the evening. That's when the crowd starts pouring into the 700 restaurants, bars, and clubs here. Multiple events take place here through the year. In January, the Hoekago Procession of floats; in February, rice making ceremonies to ward off evil; and July sees the Soemon-cho Summer Festival.
