Osaka is famous for its down-to-earth citizens and hearty cuisine. It is the working heart of this area of Japan. By night, the city really comes into its own when all the streets and alleys come alive with flashing neon, beckoning residents and travelers alike with promises of tasty food and good times. The main entertainment and restaurant district of Dotombori-dori will remind you of the movie "Blade Runner". Osaka is a city to be experienced in its totality. Casual strolls are likely to be just as rewarding as a structured sightseeing tour.
