An oasis of tranquility
Dōtonbori, in Osaka, is an attack on the senses – two miles of neon-clad awesome, all noise, delicious smells and people in the craziest costumes imaginable fighting for your attention. On a Friday night, when we were there, it’s positively bustling. And this Buddhist monk was sitting, bang in the middle of the street, lost in prayer.
An unbelievable sight.
