In part three (of four) of images from the Dotonbori in Osaka the journey continues….
There were quite a few little second hand book shops around this area. It’s a shame I don’t read Japanese (although probably better for my wallet).
Literally every turn around a corner seemed like a new area that was worth exploring.
I think the lanterns that are often seen outside restaurants are great, but I particularly like the pig version seen here.
Often entrances to restaurants (and some shops too) were covered covered by a small curtain, this one decorated with a pufferfish.
