Dotonbori is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Osaka and it is located in the district of Nanba, running along the Dotonbori canal from Dotonboribashi Bridge to Nipponbashi Bridge. The area is always busy but especially at night, when the chaos combined with the shiny neon lights make it the place to be. Absolutely incredible.
The Dotonobori area is also well known for its many great restaurants: an absolute "must try" are the famous octopus fried balls, called "takoyaki"..delicious!

I'm a photographer & videographer. I was born and grew up in Prato (Italy) but now live in London (UK). I have always loved Japan, enjoy manga & anime, and visited Japan for the first time in 2013. Travelling is my life! I crossed North America, Africa, and Europe but Asia is the continent that fascinates me most so I visited Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, China, and Japan.
