    Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) is a district in the Chūō-ku ward of Osaka, Japan and the city’s main shopping area. It centers around Shinsaibashi-suji, a covered shopping street, that is north of Dōtonbori and parallel and east of Mido-suji street. Associated with Shinsaibashi, and west of Mido-suji street, is Amerika-mura, an American-themed shopping area and center of Osaka’s youth culture. Major stores and boutiques concentrates are found around the area. Shinsaibashi is easily accessed via the subway.

    Dōtonbori (道頓堀) is one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Japan. It is a single street, running alongside the Dōtonbori canal between the Dōtonboribashi Bridge and the Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba ward of Osaka. A former pleasure district, Dōtonbori is famous for its historic theaters (all gone now), its shops and restaurants, and its many neon and mechanized signs, including snack/candy manufacturer Glico’s giant electronic display of a runner crossing the finish line.

    What is Japan?
    See from the plane, Japan is a very green country, with a lot of forest resources I think.
    Osaka is a very busy city in day and night.
    When I first arrived in Osaka, I am not accustomed to here…
    This city makes me dizzy…many people, many shops, many buildings…many consumer places
    I can feel a very strong pressure in Osaka’s air.
