Dotonbori & America-Mura

Bright neon lights and vivid signboards that may reach the sky, and those colors clearly reflect in Dotombori River. This energetic area is the center of Minami. Dotombori and Shinsaibashi-Suji are historically known as flourishing streets, and today the neighboring areas such as America-Mura, Europe-Dori and Minami Semba set the trends of Osaka. Things to do and see are increasing all the time. Why don’t you take a walk and discover the various charms of Minami?
