Doutonbori: Food and Shopping Haven

Doutonbori is located in Namba Station, one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka. In fact I’ve found Doutonbori as a food and shopping haven. Aaaaahhh! When we arrived in Doutonbori, we were so elated and  said, “This is what we are looking for in Japan!” Good thing Doutonbori is just a few steps from our hotel that  we spend every night strolling in this place. I must say two nights are not enough to explore the place.

We’ve also tried Kobe beef and other premium beef and I must say it melts in your mouth! Too mouthwatering! They also have this certificate/sticker to prove the quality of the beef.

Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade is along Dotonbori. It is approximately 600-meter long. It combines arcades, chain retail stores and trendy boutiques.  I suggest that you bring extra money or credit cards with you because definitely you will drool over their items! Tempting? No! VERY TEMPTING!
