The South of Osaka (Minami)

Interesting
Officially the entertainment district, visitors flock to Minami for its pleasure district attractions of restaurants, bars, theatres, live venues and gambling houses, which vie for attention against a backdrop of blaring neon lights. On Dotonbori Street, you can nibble on fried octopus while trying to decipher the trendy teenagers' sartorial codes. The appealingly old-fashioned Hozen-ji Temple lies hidden in the street of the same name.
