Dotonbori was the first place I headed to when I arrived in Osaka. It was night time by the time I arrived. Hungry and tired, we decided to come to Dotonbori to find something to eat. This place was loaded with tourists. There is a river where people can get on a tour boat to see the city.
Everywhere I go, they seem to be selling the same type of food. Takoyako, yakisoba, okonomiyaki, BBQ, and crab. Oh, and there were ramen restaurants. I wanted ramen but there were line ups everywhere. I hate waiting. I have zero patience. So, I ended up eating takoyaki. I don't like takoyaki that much. I find that the takoyaki in japan is very watery in the inside. I guess that's the traditional way to make it? In Hong Kong, it's a little stiffer in the inside. Anyways, I didn't like it, just not my cup of tea.
Along the river, there is the Donkihote shop! The 24 hr tax free shop.
There's also the famous Glico man.
They have big catchy signs for every shop there~ Very busy and interesting. It would be better with there were at least 50% less people. I was suffocating in the crowd. So, I didn't eat anything else other than the takoyaki.
Wandering around the street, we came across the Kamigata Ukiyoe Museum, which was already closed by the time I got there. So, just took a picture of the cute kitty on the wall. It's a museum that displays some art woodblocks. I didn't get to go inside, so don't know if it's any good. It's point D in the map below.
Across from the Kamigata Ukiyoe Museum, it's the Hozenji Yokocho Alley. Alley with some cool looking restaurants with ancient designs. There's this temple in there as well. It's point C in the map below.
I am always scared to take pictures of temples. I am scared things that shouldn't be there shows up in my pictures. However, the temples in Japan looks too cool to not take a picture of.
