  • The water which was not able to be said to be beautiful was dark when going at night, and the neon of the building on both sides and the light of the sightseeing boat were beautiful.

  • Clean and quiet river, we can enjoy this river and Osaka city by boat. There are also several shopping areas.

  • Dotombori river cruise is a waste of time and they continue service even when it’s raining what they define as ‘lightly’. We were given flimsy raincoats and sat miserably in the rain. It goes up and down the river under bridges.. in my opinion you are better off walking as you get to see more. If you bought an Osaka amazing pass and get to ride this ‘free’ by all means take a ride .. if it’s not raining
  • I loved this place so much. It’s like a small Times Square with a river. We had dinner at an italian restaurant with a great view. Would definitely recommend this area!
