My dream of visiting Osaka finally came true yesterday! It was exactly as I had seen on the net and had imagined. The reflection of multi colored lights glazed over the water in the canal of Dotonbori like icing on a cake. The sounds of the nightlife rang in the air. People chatting in Kansai ben and the common phrases being shouted….”Sumimasen~nomihoudai” meaning “excuse me…all you can drink!” were what made Dotonbori so interesting. When the shops closed up, the streets became a different place. Hosts and Hostesses flooded the narrow alleys and main bridge of Dotonbori hoping to nab a customer. It was quite an interesting and fun time hanging out over there. I will definitely be going back on my next visit to Japan.
