From visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine in the day, to walking through Dotonbori at night. I’m not sure whose idea it was, but my family and I found ourselves making our way through the crowded streets of Dotonbori.
Dotonbori is crazy busy. It feels like London’s Piccadilly Circus on steroids. There are giant neon signs and people everywhere! I lost sight of my family at one stage.
We were in Dotonbori in search of dinner. The street we walked down had restaurants with massive food signs to show what they specialise in. I loved it! Although, I find an octopus making takoyaki out of itself a little morbid…
Our family eventually found a place for dinner. I can’t remember the name, but it was on the fifth floor and sold Japanese tapas, if that makes any sense. We were given an iPad to order our food and drinks as we pleased, which is so convenient and so dangerous. My Younger Sister and I ordered up a storm! After getting our fill, we headed back into the streets of Dotonbori.
After enough sight-seeing, we headed back to our hotel to get some much needed rest. It was really interesting to visit Dotonbori. Not sure how it would feel during the day, but it’s certainly pretty amazing to be there at night.
