Things to Do in Osaka – Dotonburi

I’m going to start posting some of my favorite pictures that I have taken abroad every week. Osaka, Japan was one of my favorite places in Japan and I couldn’t help but happily snap away. The main strip, Dotonburi is amazing and full of life and colors. If you’re looking for things to do in Osaka, this is a must see spot!

It is weird to see my progression over the years as my photography has developed. I cannot wait for the day we return to Japan. I’m sure that I will be happily clicking away. Osaka still remains one of my favorite experiences while traveling (and we have quite the travel resume now!) and I feel incredibly blessed that I have the opportunity to share snippets of life with you.

One day we will be able to share the sights, sounds, and smells. I can only imagine what kind of wanderlust will be sparked at that point!

For those of you new to the blog, welcome. I hope you enjoy my pictures and we hope to see you around. Cheers!

Osaka, Jaoan

Be prepared to be a wee bit overwhelmed. :)

Dōtonbori (道頓堀?, pronounced [doːtomboɽi]) is one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Japan. It is a single street, running alongside the Dōtonbori canal between the Dōtonboribashi Bridge and the Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba ward of Osaka. A former pleasure district, Dōtonbori is famous for its historic theatres (all gone now), its shops and restaurants, and its many neon and mechanised signs, including snack/candy manufacturer Glico’s giant electronic display of a runner crossing the finish line.

    Yeah! I like this one. You seem to capture a certain characteristic or personality trait of the place. Seafood and humor, an eclectic mix. Hopefully I get to experience this city soon.
