A large variety of restaurants, shops, eateries, retail outlets concentrated in 1 large area. If you have just an ounce of consumerism in you, there would probably be something here to your liking.

Dotonbori is everything you want Japan to be, colourful, high rise, kawaii, neon pulsing, bustling, giant sushi and mechanical crab signs. A tourist heaven :) Make sure to pose with the Glico man!

Walking is good option because Dotonbori is in the middle of Namba subway station 5 mins walk) and Nippombashi subway station(7 mins walk). You may check Google map or get a map from the hotel.

I only saw one public restroom which was pretty "crude". On the women's side, there was only one stall with no toilet paper. We could actually see into the men's side (at the urinal) while waiting in line. I spotted the... More
