Dōtonbori, Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street (Osaka)

Tonkatsu Brunch > Osaka Station > Namba Walk > Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street 

After walking for a bit from Namba Station, we found ourselves at Dōtonbori, one Osaka's popular tourist destinations. It is a street that is a popular shopping and entertainment district and runs parallel to the Dōtonbori canal. It is also known as a food destination. At night, neon lights and mechanized signs light up this colorful street. This includes the famous Glico Running Man sign and Kani Doraku crab sign.

Our first stop was the nearby is Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street: one of the largest shopping districts in the world and spans about 350 meters in length from the Ebisubashi Bridge. Within Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street are countless of shops selling almost everything from department stores, fashion shops, theaters, restaurants and bars. There was really a lot to see and there were even traditional shops with long histories along with handmade craftsmanship.

There was so much to see and so much to walk that our feet started to get tired. So we found refuge at a Rikuro Ojisan Shop Namba Flagship Store. The cheesecakes are freshly backed and the queue was insane! But we manged to get a seat, enjoy our fluffy cheesecake and enjoy a view of how the cheesecakes were being made.

Rikuro Ojisan Shop Namba Flagship Store - the queue was long and almost never seemed to cease, but it was fast moving.
The presentation was simple, but the taste of the cheesecake and it's fluffiness made up for the aesthetics. The taste was not too sweet, sweetened by the hint of raisins at the bottom of the cake, and it was light and (once again) fluffy. 😋

Once we were all recharged and rearing to go, we continued all the way to the end of Ebisu Bashi-Suji Shopping Street and made our way to Shinsaibashi-Suji Shopping Arcade, another of shops and restaurants!

How to get there:

  1. 3 minute walk from Namkai Namba Station OR
