We'd heard that the main place to go at night was Dotonbori ((道頓堀). After we checked into our Osaka hotel, we headed over. The area is crazy as you can see from the pictures. It's the area betweenthe Dōtonbori canal from Dōtonboribashi Bridge to Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba district of the Osaka's Chuo ward.
It was crazier than it looks even
We'd heard you were supposed to have octopus balls in Osaka, so we did. They were definitely meatier and more octopus-filled there. I vote in favor of the Kyoto octopus balls though.

Eight octopus balls to go!
Is this a bar? A temple? A fortune teller? We don't know.
Kevin had a drink at Bar Core, a TINY but fancy whisky bar.
