If there’s one place in Osaka where tourists flock in large numbers, it is Dotonbori Street. Historically known as the theater district of Osaka, today it’s the city’s most popular entertainment, food, and shopping destination. The ultimate sensory experience, Dotonbori runs parallel to the Dotonbori canal and, at night, is illuminated with hundreds of neon lights and mechanized signs, including the famous Glico Running Man sign and the Kani Doraku crab sign.
One of the best places to start an exploration of Dotonbori is through a Tonbori River Cruise, which is one of the top things to do in Nanba. It is a 20-minute ride on the canal that allows you to drink-in Dotonbori’s buoyant atmosphere and note places to shop or dine. If shopping is on your agenda, the Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade is the place to check out. Six hundred meters (1,968 feet) long, it is Osaka’s longest shopping arcade. Shinsaibashi is stuffed with local and international brand names. The place is great for people watching, and jam-packed with restaurants and cafes that serve everything from pizza to waffles. If that’s not enough to quell your shopping urge, then visit Don Quijote, Japan’s biggest discount store. And for electronics, you can’t beat Den Den Town.
For dining options, you can’t go wrong at Kuromon Ichiba Market. Referred to as the Kitchen of Osaka, Kuromon Ichiba Market is a place where you can eat while you walk. Go with an empty stomach so you can sample as much as possible, from oysters to pastries! Want to burn some calories?Head to Stadium 1, where you can indulge in karaoke and sports, like badminton, volleyball, and golf putting. If you’re a food fanatic, looking for fun and shopping, spend time in Dotonbori. And if you’re looking for a conveniently located Airbnb in Osaka’s Dotonbori district, plenty of amazing options await you. Allow the friendly locals a chance to show off this glitzy tourist hotspot by staying at one of these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Dotonbori, Osaka.
