Dotonbori, is a popular destination street in Osaka to both locals and tourist. Here is where you can find a number of restaurants and entertainment establishments all close together.
Minutes after I arrived at the hotel from Universal Studios Japan, I found myself on the go again, taking train to Nippombashi station from Dobutsuen-mae (JPY200).
Here are some of the things I saw in Dotonbori:
Plates Dotonbori Hotel Gloria
Krani Doraku (crab restaurant on the left) and other restaurants
floating blowfish lantern
Walking further, I arrived at Osaka Shinsekai where Tsutenkaku Tower, an observatory tower is located. This is the second generation of the tower as the first was destroyed during war. The original tower is similar to Eiffel Tower.

After having dinner at a fast food (Yoshinoya), I headed back to the hotel (by walking) and took a deep rest. It was just my second day and I have already covered a lot! Looking forward for Day 3 in the city!
