♫♫ Dotombori, Osaka ♫♫

Dotombori is a symbol of the Minami Area and a mecca for the kuidaore food culture of Osaka. Dozens of restaurants line the Dotomborigawa River, and large famous billboards draw diners'attention. On the north side of the river, where geisha used to entertain their customers, are now small bars and restaurants squeezed together in rows. The southern side of the river is the center of the Dotombori area, which was once known as the theater district. Nowadays, colorful neon signs and flash signboards enliven the area, showing that the district still represents the passion of Osakans. Dotombori has so many restaurants and bars packed along its narrow streets and alleys that it's impossible to count them. Their colorful signs and decorated entrances create a symphony of light and design that dazzle the eye. Here is where you can experience the true meaning of kuidaore, and stuff yourself with Osaka's great tasting reasonably priced food to your ultimate culinary satisfaction.

The number of people in the streets is overwhelming. The lights and signs, remind me of New York's Time Square. Obviously, an area where making a decision of what to eat would be extremely difficult.

I lost my wife two or three times here. 😊 And all the restaurants were completely full. Not my cup of tea, but interesting all the same 😁
