Travel Guide - Dotonbori

InformationInformation

Dotonbori is the most popular and busiest shopping street in Osaka. In this bustling district filled with flashy signs of shops and companies, you can enjoy Osaka's local food, such as Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki, or shopping Osaka's original goods that are perfect for souvenirs. You can start by exploring the wall-to-wall restaurants along the south bank of the Dotonbori River. A walking path along the river called "Tonbori River Walk" is a good place for taking a break. South of Dotonbori down to Nanba station is a maze of colorful arcades with more shops and restaurants.
The huge sign of "Glico Man", a marathon runner printed on the packages of Glico's caramel candy, Kuidaore Taro, a character of the long-established restaurant Kuidaore (the restaurant was closed in 2008), Big blowfish lantern of a blowfish restaurant Zubora-ya, and Kani Doraku Crab, a moving crab-shaped sign of a crab restaurant Kani Doraku, are the landmarks of Dotonbori.
