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.

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.

Shinsaibashi is a premier shopping arcade running north-south in the Minami district, one of Osaka's two major retail centers. About 600m long, this pedestrian street provides a wide selection of choices from high-end department stores, both international and Japanese brands such as H&M and Uniqlo, chain stores, kimono shops, boutiques, the 100-yen shop, pharmacies, restaurants, cafes and fresh-from-the-griddle crepes.

As this strip is sheltered from the elements, it is a great escape from a rainy day or a scorching summer day. The southern end meets the Dotonbori River, Osaka's well-known gourmand area. It is recommended that you get off at Namba Station, walk northward through this arcade, and take the train at Shinsaibashi Station instead of walking all the way back.

The walk-through aquarium displays an abundance of marine life, especially of the Pacific 'ring of fire' volcano belt region. It covers 30,000 animals of 600 different species from fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and invertebrates. With a total volume of water reaching 11,000 tons, this is definitely one of the largest aquarium worth a visit.

A walkway winds its way down from the 8th floor to explore life from 10 different ocean regions and levels, from Antarctic penguins to a huge variety of tropical fish and floating jellyfish. The most popular is the largest 9 meter-deep tank, which houses a gigantic whale shark and different types of manta. There are English explanations throughout.

Located next to the Osaka Aquarium, this three-story complex accommodates a diversity of shops, restaurants and amusement facilities. Among the most popular is the Naniwa Kuishimbo Yokocho ('Osaka gourmand alley'), a retro-looking 1960s-1970s food mall serving takoyaki, okonomiyaki, grilled squids, cutlet skewers and other Osaka treats. For those with kids, a pool with large slides and a pet garden featuring dogs, cats and rabbits are a pleasant experience. Cruise boats looping around the bay depart at a nearby pier.
