We saw this ferris wheel as we cruised along the Dotonbori river. Quite a small ferris wheel and not very prominent.

Great views from the rotating pods in the Don Quixote wheel - high above the neon lights and canals! Definitely worth a seat and admire the views from above.

This location is right in the Dotonbori and was quite hectic traffic wise. There are many other stores in Osaka that are not as difficult to navigate through. Don Quijote stores were great while in Japan!

This place is always a zoo. The prices are not good as they first appear. Unless you are really pressed for time, do some more shopping around. I also found, compared to other stores with the same type of merchandise, this one had the least...More
