Exploring Dotonbori (Part Two)
In this post there is more from the Dotonbori area of Osaka, a bright commercial area in the city famous for its neon lights.
We arrived at a nice time because the sun was beginning to set. But as the light began to fade the place really came to life – the lights became more prominent and the colours really did feel the streets.
In this area there was so much to photograph. I often try to look for details, even in the busiest and most colourful places. Here a small inscription on a doorway to a restaurant shows what you can miss if you don’t pay attention to the details.
In addition the main street there were lots of different side streets leading off in different directions, often covered like this one, filled with even more amazing restaurants and shops. I probably could have spent a good week working my way just around this area, never mind the rest of Japan!
