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.
