Loved walking around the Dotonbori river and seeing all the lights. The Japanese version of Times Square! Lots of shopping, food, people and everything else the heart of a city has. Beautiful photo spot also :)

The vibe of this place is crazy. Well worth a visit. Lots of options for eating and shopping. We enjoyed it more than areas of Tokyo.

So much food to choose from. So busy but it is the place to go. Consider spending a few hours here and don't be tempted by the first thing u see.

Walking is good option because Dotonbori is in the middle of Namba subway station 5 mins walk) and Nippombashi subway station(7 mins walk). You may check Google map or get a map from the hotel.
