Osaka at Night Time

Dotonbori
Dotonbori is a downtown district located in the area along the Dotonbori River which starts from Nipponbashi (bridge) to Dotonboribashi (bridge). At night time, it is lit by hundreds of neon lights and mechanised signs, including the famous Glico Running Man sign and Kani Doraku crab sign.

America-Mura, Shinsaibaishi Shopping Centre and Dotonbori is all along in one street which called Minami, one of the Osaka's two major cities centers.

Then after, Nicole and I heading back to our hostel to put all of our shopping grabs before visiting our final pitstop . Yeah, both of us shopping lots especially on cosmetic products. It is more cheaper when comes to Shiseido brand, as this is their local products.
