If there is one thing I can tell you about finding accommodation in Osaka, it’s to make sure it’s close by Dotonbori. Getting an airbnb that is a short walking distance to Dotonbori is probably the best thing we did.
Dotonbori is THE place to go! It boasts a number of well known restaurants offering a range of traditional and modern Japanese dishes. After spending the whole day exploring Japan, I remember we would always end up in Dotonbori at night to eat delicious meals.
It’s a fun destination to eat and shop. Don’t forget to go to Don Quijote Store which is open 24 hrs. That’s where I got most of my souvenirs and everything is fairly priced. PRO TIP: If you show your passport, you can actually get tax free shopping!
