The original plan was to go to Osaka Castle, then take a cruise boat to Namba/Dotonburi. Since we got in the city later than planned. We decided to skip Osaka Castle and go in the morning. Dotonburi shouldn’t be missed at night. ^.^


From Shin-Osaka station, we took the subway and stopped at Shinsaibashi. We actually had no idea where we were going, we just followed the crowd until we got here.

IMG_5071Dotonburi is lively at night. This is the Kani Doraku, it’s impossible to miss it. There are a lot of crab food and merchandise outside its shop.

IMG_5082The infamous Kuidaore Taro – the drum playing clown.

IMG_5090IMG_5102Zuboro-ya – the fugu restaurant. I was really tempted to try fugu but I really couldn’t risk it and probably afford it. Maybe next time.. ^.^

IMG_5111There was the smaller version of Glico Man along this road but I couldn’t find a pciture. It also has a store next to it with plenty of cute merchandise.

IMG_5114We ate a lot on this street, the food deserves another post. ^.^

IMG_5142We called it a night and looked for the subway. It got a bit chilly too. Dotonburi in my opinion is in the top 3 of places to see in Osaka.
