  • Iconic Osaka spot with a lively ambience and pretty views. Eateries line the river and there’s plenty of shopping in the area. In the heart of the city centre and it’s a fantastic stop on a walking tour of Osaka’s Dotonbori area. However, I wouldn’t recommend making a special trip down just to catch a glimpse of the sign.
  • The place was too crowded to my liking. Too many tourists. We could barely walk without being shoved around by other tourists. Maybe it's good for shopping good deals but I wasn't there to shop-just to sightsee and try the street food. I honestly didn't feel like this place is a good representative of Japan as it felt more like crowded Chinese factory outlet
