-･- From My Everyday Life to Japanese Culture -･- Why don't you see the real Japan, not the typical foreigners' version.
This is so popular scenery among Japanese people that everyone comes to know where I was at a glance.
I took the picture on “Ebisu-bashi (戎橋: Ebisu bridge)” over Doutonbori (道頓堀) river in Osaka. The neighborhood of the bridge is center of Minami (南, South) which is one of major shopping and entertainment districts.
I had Italian dinner with my friend in “Shinsaibashi (心斎橋)”, which is north of the bridge. Before that, we walked down the street toward this unique district.
I visit Osaka once or twice a year, but I went to this area after so long.
It’s a garish town but really a taste of downtown Osaka.
This is five-day travel including a side trip on the way home!
