Osaka is known as the city of "kuidaore" which translates as eating oneself to financial ruins. You will find this mantra really true in Dotombori. There are stalls serving hot steaming takoyaki and restaurants with colorful neon lights that allure you to Osakan treats such as okonomiyaki (grilled savory pancake), kushikatsu (deep fried skewers), fugu (puffy fish) and kani (crab).

This gourmet strip is easy to spot as the over-the-top, 3-D signs including Glico Running Man and Kani Doraku Crab welcome you at the south entrance. The walkways along a canal (Dotombori-gawa) that runs parallel to the street is a good place to stroll after dinner.

Dotombori is one of the most well-known spots where the typicl local foods are available at the reasonable costs, and it is always crowded not only with the tourists but also with the local people.

For instance, the gigantic crab model which operates mechanically will motivate you to enjoy a variety of crab dishes. Please enjoy the authentic Osaka specialities in Dotombori.

X21

I grew up in this unique and one of a kind city. As the review explains, Osaka(locals call "Minami") offers a wide variety of tasty cuisines that will satisfy your palate. The city also boasts many historical sites such as Osaka castle(one of the largest in Japan), Sumiyoshi shrine, Shitennouji temple and so on. You will surly be impressed by their appearances and significant values. Its easy access to Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe(roughly within an hour) attracts so many tourists as well. I will be glad to show you around this lovely city.

America Mura, also know as Ame-Mura, is a youth-focused retail and entertainment area near Shinsaibashi in the Minami district of Osaka. In 1970s, the blocks formerly bristled with warehouses turned into a retail center of second-hand clothes, records and accessories imported from the US west coast and Hawaii, thus called "America Village" by mass media.

In addition to hip, offbeat shops with unique merchandising, this retail space is a good spot to observe the latest fads of Japanese teens, as well as pleasant monuments and artistic objects. A sleepless haunt of youngsters, Ame-Mura is busy with bars and nightclubs, attracting hordes of wannabe musicians, designers and dancers at night.

Americamura(American village) is a shopping district close to dotonbori where you can buy vintage clothes, jeans, accessories, second-hand records.

You can appreciate “Osaka’s” hip and trendy fashion by observing young people. Also, at Americamura, you experience “Takoyaki” and other local tasty cuisines.
