Dear customer, Thank you very much for your great review. Although the area of Dotonbori is known for shopping, dinner, and party, there are many sightseeing spots within 30 minutes by train. We actually have many families that travel and come to stay at our hotel. We're sorry to hear that the Karaoke crowd was loud at the time. We...

It's close to drinking places, eating places; metro stops, and buses; it's just convenient. There are a lot of freebies like a bikes,...
