Osaka City Lights at Night

Dōtonbori after dark

By Christie Petrakopoulou    - 1 min read

Osaka is a beautiful city in the Kansai region of Japan. It is the third largest city by population after Tokyo and Yokohama. This video focuses on Dōtonbori, a major tourist destination in the Nanba district of the city's Chuo ward. Mainly an entertainment and shopping area, Dōtonbori never gets dark as even after the sun sets, the area lights up again because of the bright colors of the illuminated signboards.

Hi! My name is Christie and I’m a journalist/blogger. Originally from Athens, Greece but living in Stockholm, Sweden I’m doing my Masters in Media and Communication Studies at Stockholm University. For one year I’ll be living and traveling around Japan in search of new challenges and experiences. I am a Japan, dance and life enthusiast. I believe in traveling, positive energy and the power of ice-cream. I love telling stories. Stories are not only for children but for adults too! In my world stories can be told with words, photos and videos.  What do I do? I photograph and video shoot as I go. Basically my everyday life could be summed up in an endless series of pictures. I believe that photographs and videos are all about story-telling. Recreating real life inspired stories through my photographs, videos and texts is what inspires me the most and keeps me going.
