Dotombori, or The Times Square of Osaka

After arriving in Osaka and leaving our bags at our hotel room, Cy and I headed out to see the lights of Dotombori, the famous stretch of riverside neon–and tourists. The guide book promised tourists, and they weren’t kidding. The crowds immediately reminded me of the tacky splendor of Times Square in New York. But alas, no Naked CowboyWe gawked a bit and snapped some photos. Cy decided to try his hand at the fancy camera. “Try focusing with your hand not covering the lens,” I advised. 

“Much better!”.  

Indeed. After some ramen and gyoza we headed back to the hotel for the night. 

On tomorrow’s agenda: the Pokémon Centre and Himeji Castle.
