Explore Japanese best street food heaven in downtown Osaka
If you’re looking for a food lover’s paradise with a great easygoing vibe in Japan, Osaka is certainly the top choice with a sheer variety of foods that can overwhelm your mind. A place to distribute the nation’s goods during the Edo period, the city of Osaka is a Japanese culinary highlight with a fantastic food culture. For the expansive local culinary scene, take a stroll along the Dotonbori downtown, Osaka’s most popular entertainment and culinary destination. Best seen at night, this street is packed with many neon-laden restaurants and street food stalls cooking up various local dishes, such as takoyaki (octopus balls), okonomiyaki (savory pancake), Kitsune Udon (thick wheat noodles), and sushi. In case seafood is your favourite, check out Kuromon Market, known as “Osaka’s Kitchen”, to enjoy some of the best and freshest seafood like diver scallops, oysters, and octopus.
