We were staying nearby Dotonbori area and it is so convenient to walk around this area. It was a rainy day and unable to walk free and thus ended up to visit all the shops around this area. There are many restaurants around too and we visited one of the Ramen and the name of this shop is Makotoya. You should try if you are looking for Ramen.
We spent most of the shopping around this area before we left Osaka. Nice place & for sure will come again.

If you’re in Osaka you definitely need to visit this area: loads of people, lots of shops, good atmosphere, plenty of restaurants with cool façades to take photos of. I’ve you visit in the evening when it’s all lit up, even better.

Dotonbori is everything is promises to be. Bright, vibrant, hustling, crowded, fun and safe! Street eats everywhere, so much choice it’s hard to know where to eat! Look for the smaller family run establishments! The neon lights are amazing and obviously as good as it is in the daytime, it’s a million percent better after dark. Octopus balls (Yakatori) are a local specialty but I actually found them bland and uninteresting. On the other hand, the best grade Kobe and Wagyu beef is to die for! OMG- it just dissolves on the tongue. Try the Wagyu carpaccio and rare beef skewers. Amazing! I thought I’d died and gone to heaven! I think I even moaned in pleasure just a little while eating! Doesn’t matter if you can’t speak Japanese! Point at the menu and say Arigato a lot!!! You’re going to love it!!!

It's a famous area in Osaka, there are fantastic bargains to be had here on food. The street food is amazing, and cheap too.
