First area we arrived to coming from KIX. Very lively area with both shopping and food streets around. Lots of hotels and malls in the area aside from a couple of department stores.

Adjacent to Dotombori and with just as much to see. Bright lights, bustling streets, a multitude of food options and close to bars and transport network. Well worth spending time here.

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.
