There are just so many things to see and do at Dontonbori! Very crowded streets starting after lunch, but that's where the fun is! Many restaurants to choose from, from super expensive to low price (but yummy) street snacks, there is something for everyone in the family. When planning a trip to Osaka, do plan to spend at least half a day at Dotonbori.

Many different venues along the street, also many opportunities to take photos, or even better to grab some of the delicious food along the street.

Quite crowded. One of the pros was meant to be the epic street food - we tried the famous octopus balls, which were nice, but nothing to travel about... Other than that, had some average sushi. Overall, a nice experience of busy city japan, but not a wow moment.

Travelled here via the boat, wondered round in daylight, then went to Den Den town and slowly walked back to Dotonbori to see it at night. You cannot explain a place like this, you just have to experience it.

It’s super busy, it’s loud and full of neons and it’s fun! There are many places to eat and shops to wander around. A must in Osaka!
