I rather stay at a dormitory guesthouse right in the heart of this pulsating and dynamic zone rather than `hiding' somewhere in the outskirt of the city. You will never feel bored since there are also many eateries, shops, entertainment outlets, pubs in this lively...More

This is a must visit stop on your trip to Osaka. It is livelier at night with all the lights and variety of street food stalls along the strip. Come hungry and bring cash. We made stops whenever we see something we'd like to try....More

Huge billboards with neon and building size tv screens. Come in the evening/ night and see the bright lights. Shopping and restaurants abound in this area. Far to many options to get around on a few days visit. Lots of people and very busy. Same...More

It is a very famous crab restaurant and we had to wait 2 hours to get our table. Food Quality is good and taste is OK but not worth to wait for this long.

My top advise is to just eat when your hungry! Don’t think your going to find a hidden gem & keep strolling along with no plan as you’ll end up hungry. Just eat wherever, it’s all really good!
