Japanese Food Shopping Osaka Kansai

Dotonbori (道頓堀) is perhaps Osaka's most recognizable downtown area. It's famous for its countless restaurants, heralded by bright neon signs or larger-than-life representations of some of Osaka's best-known foods! It's also an incredible shopping area, with a plethora of stores as well as a large shotengai covered mall.
